Ore. defense contractor target of investigation
Jeff Barnard – (Associated Press) – Grants Pass, Ore. – July 25, 2012 – Federal authorities are investigating whether a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers program manager made sure an Oregon defense contractor won nearly $160 million worth of contracts as part of a cozy relationship that included snowboarding and fishing vacations, trips to Singapore and Bali, and sex with female employees.
Affidavits filed in U.S. District Court in Eugene outline findings and statements from investigation that Jerry Hodgson, a program manager for the corps in Omaha, Neb., rigged bids on eight contracts dating back to 2004 for Sky Research Inc. of Ashland. The company specializes in aerial surveys of old military bombing and gunnery ranges to find unexploded weapons.
