Failure to Meet Small Business Subcontracting Requirements

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Inspector General (IG) found that Leidos subsidiary Mission Support Alliance LLC (MSA) and CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company did not meet their small business subcontracting requirements on contracts to clean up the Hanford Site. The IG found that MSA and CH2M had miscalculated the percentages of work they subcontracted to small businesses and the amount of work the companies performed themselves. As a result, MSA may have breached its contract, and MSA and CH2M incurred potentially unallowable costs for incumbent employee support. The IG attributed these issues to inadequate oversight by MSA, CH2M, and the DOE’s Richland Operations Office. The IG found that MSA did not have formal procedures for reviewing and validating its own small business subcontracting reports, and that MSA and CH2M did not adequately evaluate the appropriateness of incumbent employee subcontract arrangements.
