Commission on Wartime Contracting disbanding
Thursday - 9/29/2011, 10:31am EDT
The Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan is going dark.
The Congressionally-chartered commission will shut down at the close of business Friday after three years, 25 hearings and eight reports to Congress.
The Commission's most recent — and final — report said that as much as $60 billion dollars has been lost to waste and fraud on wartime contracts.
The final report's recommendations have gained traction on Capitol Hill, but commission Co-Chair Christopher Shays, a former Connecticut Republican congressman, said any further progress will have to come from the administration and congress.
