Here’s a Navy item I never dreamed I’d cover.
Where are our taxpayer dollars going? Apparently, to polygraph (lie detector) exams in support of Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) counter-intelligence efforts.
Potomac River Group LLC,
, is being awarded a $35,300,000 fixed-price,
indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to obtain certified contractor
support to administer polygraph examinations for Naval Criminal Investigative
Service counterintelligence in support of the Navy Insider Threat
program. The contract is good for 5 years. Ashburn, Virginia
Let’s do the math on this one. That $35M contract is for 5 years so that’s $7.06M per year or $19,342 per day!!!
That’s $19,342 per day of polygraph exams, every day of the year. Do we really have that many polygraph exams to administer or does that cost seem just a tad excessive?
