Washington — Auditors say lax controls in Pentagon cost millions
Pentagon auditors charge that lax management and supervision of prices charged by defense contractors has cost the government millions of dollars. A report released Tuesday reviewed nine major contracts awarded to six military contractors totaling about $5.5 billion, and said internal Pentagon auditors had conducted ''minimal or nonexistent'' audits on the subcontracts.
The findings were released just as the Pentagon sought seeking approval of its fiscal 1985 budget.
