Government Audits, Investigations and Claims Vedder Service

Oversight of government contracts continues to grow.

Today, a variety of government organizations are authorized to investigate an increasingly wide range of contractor activities—from actions that range from routine financial audits, performance evaluations and investigations of suspected fraud, waste or abuse to outright criminal investigations. Understanding the nature of jurisdictional scope and potential exposure of a government inquiry is essential to protecting your company’s rights.

We can assist with addressing issues and inquiries—ranging from highly technical questions to allegations of criminal misconduct—raised by various agencies, including the following:

  • Defense Contract Audit Agency

  • Defense Contract Management Command
  • Army Criminal Investigative Division

  • Navy Criminal Investigative Service
  • Department of Justice
