Air Force Materiel Command Saves $1.3B Through Procurement Fraud-Detection Efforts

Air Force Materiel Command has helped the government save approximately $1.3B by countering fraudulent activities in U.S. Air Force procurement efforts.

AFMC personnel investigate the majority of all fraud cases related to electronics, hardware, software and labor services for the military branch, Air Force said Tuesday.

Six command attorneys have trained at least 15K government workers over the past decade on how to detect contracting fraud.

The Hanscom AF Base in Massachusetts will host on Oct. 30 a Northeast Fraud Working Group meeting that seeks to help the installation's staff members spot illegal or dishonest behavior during the weapons acquisition process.
