I totally agree that the intelligence community needs GAO oversight. I have audited intelligence agency contracts and can attest that the intelligence community contracting officers bend over backwards to give sweet deals to contractors. Audit findings are routinely ignored in the "interest of national security." If the President and Congress want to save money, cut the intelligence budgets and then maybe the contracting officers will get serious about negotiating fair and reasonable contract prices. Currently, "negotiation" means give the contractor what they ask for. I have even seen the price increased in a few instances even when the contractor did not ask for a higher price. No joking!
