McFarland said there may be "considerably more" fraud that hasn't been uncovered due to "alarmingly insufficient oversight" of the security-clearance process.

The review comes in the wake of the agency's recent inspector general report that revealed management interference on schedule contract negotiations. Acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini said the review will ensure the agency's contracting work is "performed with transparency and honesty."
