Intelligence Contract Labor Mischarging

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that a SAIC employee had an excessive discrepancy between hours billed and hours present at the principal place of performance. The ICIG determined that, from January to October 2012, the employee billed the government for approximately 130.25 hours during which he was not present at his worksite, amounting to a total mischarge of $20,998. The employee admitted he took breaks and lunches during the day and occasionally left work early without amending his timecard. He also admitted that he had used agency unclassified IT systems to support outside activities.
