Reporters for the Washington Post say that federal auditors have discovered massive overbilling by Unisys, hired three years ago to create a computer network for the Transportation Security Administration.
The project is costing more than double the projected amount and is nowhere near completed. Auditors found that Unisys charged higher than justified labor rates for employees and may have overcharged the government for as many as 171,000 hours of overtime.
The contract is under review for possible False Claims Act violations.
The Washington Post ran an article on the findings on October 23, 2005.
