ABSTRACT
The article looks at the allegation that excluded businesses and individuals who received federal funds in the U.S. According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), these parties are improperly receiving federal funds for reasons such as failure of agencies and use of different identities. GAO further explains that most of these improper contracts stemmed from inefficient administration of the list system and weaknesses of the agencies.
