The Bush Administration has awarded several extremely large contracts and task orders to Halliburton. Of particular concern are the contracts awarded to a Halliburton subsidiary, Kellogg Brown & Root. GAO reports and other investigations have documented a history of Brown & Root overcharging the taxpayer. Yet despite this history, the Administration has awarded Brown & Root lucrative government contracts — including a recent contract for oil-related work in Iraq that is worth up to $7 billion and that was awarded secretly and without any competition. The Administration has also awarded contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars for work in Iraq to a select group of U.S. companies, with only limited competition.
