Service-disabled veteran-owned program ripe for abuse -- Washington Technology

In the past few years, the government contracting industry has weathered its share of scandals.

From accusations of questionable behavior by contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan to front-page exposés of cozy relationships between contractors and customers, the industry's reputation has suffered.

Most recently, the industry has drawn fire over allegations that at least one large business was using small businesses as fronts to funnel money to itself. (See our recent coverage of GTSI Corp.'s suspension and reinstatement by the Small Business Administration.)

Another scandal is brewing because of the proliferation of small companies owned by service-disabled veterans and procurements geared specifically for these businesses.
