ADVANCE FOR SUNDAY, MARCH 2, AND THEREAFTER - This handout photo provided by the US Army, taken in Jan. 2010, shows retired Army Col. Bert Vergez, center, receiving his charter to manage the Project Office for Non-Standard Rotary Wing Aircraft (NSRWA), established in January 2010, from the Program Executive Officer for Aviation, now Maj. Gen. William Crosby, right, and Randy Harkins, former deputy project manager NSRWA. The relationship between the two men is at the heart of a criminal probe into why the Huntsville office Vergez once commanded kept dealing with Yuri Borisov despite an alarming catalogue of problems. The case is a glimpse into the labyrinth of military procurement, where even today, Borisov?s companies, AviaBaltika Aviation and Saint Petersburg Aircraft Repair Company, remain technically eligible for federal contracts Although the inspector general?s audit recommended the Army take steps to debar or suspend them, no such action has been taken more than a year later.
