- The Defense Department's Inspector General says Army contracting and program officials have routinely ignored the rules on time-and-materials contracts, reports GovExec. At issue are federal and defense acquisition rules that mandate competition and justification for those contracts. The IG says the Army didn't open seven task orders and three contracts to competition. And as a result, the report says, they may have missed out on almost $4 million dollars in savings. The contracts and task orders were to support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
- The Pentagon wants troops to know that the change from Operation Iraqi Freedom to Operation New Dawn will not affect combat and other hazardous duty entitlements they receive. The Defense Department says servicemembers will still be able to receive hardship duty pay, hostile fire and imminent danger pay, and other incidental expenses related to their deployment with the transition to Operation New Dawn. The President designates combat zones through an executive order.
