"We identified incorrect payments and questioned costs totaling $69.7 million," Inspector General Paul Martin wrote in the report released late last week. "We also concluded that NASA expended approximately $7.4 million to administer performance evaluations on contracts for which performance objectives were undefined, determinations that an award-fee contract was the most beneficial type of contract were not made, and relevant management information for informed decision-making was not gathered."
"We found no evidence that the team's recommendation or the administrator's decision were tainted by political influence of any other improper consideration," Inspector General Paul Martin wrote in the report released Thursday. "Moreover, we found no attempt by White House officials to direct or influence Bolden's decision making."
