A contracting loophole denies small businesses the chance to land subcontracting opportunities with the Defense Department. The Comprehensive Subcontracting Plan Test Program removes the requirement for prime DoD contractors to report their small business subcontracting plans. That leaves them without an incentive to meet their small business goals. Charles Tiefer is a law professor and contracting expert from the University of Baltimore. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said it's time to end the 25-year old test program.

Since 2008, the Office of Personnel Management has been on a crusade to root out falsification in background investigations using the courts. Nearly two dozen background investigators for either OPM or one of its contractors have been criminally prosecuted for misconduct ranging from outright falsifying reports, known as "ghostwriting," to performing sloppy checks that failed to adhere to OPM's standards.
