In a development POGO has been eagerly anticipating, Senators Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Jim Webb (D-VA) will announce legislation tomorrow to "overhaul the federal government's planning, management, and oversight of wartime-support contracting."
The legislation, called the Comprehensive Contingency Contracting Reform Act of 2012, is intended to build on the recommendations of the recently dissolved Commission on Wartime Contracting (CWC).
POGO has strongly supported the work of the CWC and has called on Congress to take action based on its recommendations. We’re pleased that Senators McCaskill and Webb took the time and effort to help further the CWC’s important work and we can’t wait to take a look at the legislation.
The announcement will take place at a press conference in the Senate Radio-Television Gallery at 2:00 p.m. tomorrow.
