Defense Department inspector general
At the request of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, the Defense Department inspector general's office recently pulled a report off its Web site to determine whether some information should be re-classified and not in the public domain.
The June 6 report noted that procurement officials at NIMA had not complied with appropriate contracting policies and procedures in awarding some recent professional and technical service contracts. NIMA's actions included omitting documents required by the Federal Acquisition Regulation, the report said.
The report was put online earlier this month, but NIMA officials requested that it be taken down.
"NIMA discovered the report contained organizational numbers and functions that are exempt from disclosure to the public," a NIMA spokeswoman said today.
"Our attorneys are looking at it and trying to determine if re-classifying some of the information [is necessary]," said Shaun Wiggins, a DOD IG external affairs officer.
Wiggins said the full report, or an amended version, should be back up on the DOD IG Web site within about a week.
