WASHINGTON – Following misrepresentation and lack of transparency by the Pentagon watchdog, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) calls for clarity and full consideration of potential omissions in the review of the Department of Defense Common Defense Infrastructure (DOD OIG) Treaty (JEDI).
“It could be that the Department of Defense Inspector General’s office has only some clarification to provide, or it could be that they fell on the job and are too ashamed to fix mistakes. There are clear issues with the failure to investigate a consultant’s links with Amazon Web Services and the inexplicable blockade of legitimate congressional document requests. Grassley said of his letter.
In a renewed letter to DOD OIG, Grassley urges clarity about the apparent material misrepresentation of documents relating to an ethics review on a Department of Defense official with AWS ties, and for full disclosure of the many documents he has received in connection with the massive $ 10 billion Dollar requested contract that was originally awarded to Amazon. Grassley is also requesting information about the members of the Inspector General’s team who were involved in this bureau’s inaccurate review of this contract.
