Notably, SIGIR’s limited cost review of Anham questioned almost 40% of the costs reviewed. Particularly egregious examples of overbilling included an Anham subcontractor that charged the U.S. government:Anham did better all right… better for itself.
• $900 for a control switch valued at $7.05 (a 12,666% difference)
• $80 for a small segment of drain pipe valued at $1.41 (a 5,574% difference)
• $75 for a different piece of plumbing equipment also valued at $1.41 (a 5,219% difference)
• $3,000 for a circuit breaker valued at $94.47 (a 3,076% difference)
• $4,500 for another kind of circuit breaker valued at $183.30 (a 2,355% difference)
As a result, SIGIR has formally questioned all of the contract’s costs and recommended reviews of billing practices in all of Anham’s U.S. government contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan, which total about $3.9 billion.
