Boeing Co Rebuts Critical Pentagon Report On Helicopter Parts-Reuters


Monday, 14 Oct 2013 04:14pm EDT 

Reuters reported that Boeing Co on October 14, 2013 rebutted a Pentagon's inspector general report that said the Company overcharged the U.S. Army by up to $16.6 million on a $4.4 billion helicopter contract and said it was still waiting to receive the final report under a Freedom of Information Act request. The report said Boeing overestimated how many new parts it would need to build the 181 CH-47F Chinook helicopters under the five-year contract, and then installed largely used parts, resulting in overcharges of $7.4 million to $16.6 million. The inspector general's report faulted the Army for not overseeing the contract properly, and noted it lacked a process to doublecheck Boeing's estimates and track the number of used or new parts that were actually installed. Boeing believed it had complied with government contracting policies under the first firm, fixed-price, five-year contract for the CH-47F helicopters, which called for Boeing to build 109 new helicopters and 72 remanufactured ones, using parts from helicopters returning from use in overseas wars, where possible. The report recommended that Boeing should be required to clearly identify the amount of new parts contingencies included in the second multiyear purchase agreement. It also faulted Boeing for being unable to track installation of parts on a specific remanufactured helicopter.
