Senator Kerry Wants A Comprehensive SBA Audit

Citing a December study showing that 2002 contracting abuses have cost small businesses $2 billion in federal contracting dollars, Senator John Kerry is calling for the SBA to do comprehensive audit of small business federal contracting figures for 2003. (Reported by the Chicago Tribune, 1/31/05; Registration Required). Kerry also wants the Bush administration to exercise greater oversight to ensue that future abuses do not occur. Finally, Kerry is asking the SBA to investigate 44 large to mid size firms (that were cited in the December study) for "willful and intentional violation of small-business law."
