Wartime Contracting Commission shutters this week

The Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan is going dark tomorrow.

The congressionally-chartered commission will shut down at the close of business on Friday after three years, 25 hearings, and eight reports to Congress.

The Commission’s most recent — and final — report said that as much as $60 billion has been lost to waste and fraud on wartime contracts.

The final report’s recommendations are gaining traction on Capitol Hill, but Commission Co-Chair Christopher Shays says any further progress will have to come from the administration and congress.
