Hr. 3~ Jim Minnery, CPA, former Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS) accountant joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about The Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan established by Congress in 2008 that spent three years probing more than $206 billion the U.S. government spent on contracts and grants during a decade of conflict.

...
Jim has firsthand knowledge of wasteful defense spending... In 2001 he was troubled by what he was seeing and was in trouble for trying to reconcile the money paper trail. Minnery was in a key position to see how the lack of internal controls and the lack of a paper trail cause millions of dollars to be written off without knowing where the money went. He was a CPA who had a 20 year career in the private accounting sector and a former Marine. He joined DFAS and was in its working capital fund group. He found that DFAS was writing off DISA's (Defense Systems Information Agency) cross disbursements (disbursements between agencies) and not matching it with the Treasury books and doing it without documentation.
Minnery was unable to get DFAS to show him the documentation (vouchers) for these write-offs and he was told that the paperwork was "inadvertently" discarded. Minnery went on a two-year mission from 1997 to 1999 to find the vouchers himself. He found that over $400 million was unmatched and that at least $180 million could not be reconciled. This meant that the money was spent and taken off DISA's liabilities without any paper trail on what the money was spent.
His thanks by his DFAS bosses was to be harassed and reassigned. After he had tracked down some of the money, the DFAS office in Pensacola responsible for the documentation of the write-off "solved" the problem by creating a bogus journal entry. Minnery was taken off as team leader, and the problem, according to the bureaucracy, is "solved."
