The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.

The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report.

The alert, originally sent on March 20 and just released this week, warns that the missing contracting funds “could expose the department to substantial financial losses.”

The report centered on State Department contracts worth “more than $6 billion in which contract files were incomplete or could not be located at all,” according to the alert. The State Department’s inability to properly file its paperwork is causing most of the losses, according to the report.

The IG “found repeated examples of poor contract file administration” over the years, the report said.

Contracts related to the U.S. war in Iraq, for instance, could not be produced in 33 out of 115 instances, according to the report.

“A recent OIG audit of the closeout process for contracts supporting the U.S. Mission in Iraq revealed that contracting officials were unable to provide 33 of 115 contract files requested in accordance with the audit sampling plan,” the report states.

Oh yeah, she’ll make a fine Presnident.

  4. Tom says:

    Does anyone really believe that the Secretary of State has anything to do with, or knowledge of, the daily dispensing of contracts for the State Department? If so, there are some bridges for sale!

    Get real people! If you want to hate Hillary for whatever reason, feel free to do so, but to use this as the basis simply shows that person’s ignorance…

    • dusanmal says:

      That is the problem with way too big Government. If Secretary of State is not personally responsible and accountable for every penny State Department spent under his/her rule – State Department (and Government within which it is) is way too big.
      Solution is not to reshuffle the deck and keep growing the beast. Solution is to elect someone who both promises and has track record of shrinking the Government. So that he/she can reduce this beast to a manageable level. And we do not need to keep sending our money to Governmental cronies pockets. Way better than raising taxes, size of Government and size of what is stolen from us.
      Also not to elect someone who can’t keep track of 6Bil $ and by all definitions likely has a fingers in the stealing pot.

    P.S. I think Hillary has been a brilliant Secretary of State and one of the best that we have had in a number of decades…

    • dusanmal says:

      Second of all. Top billing – her own 2am ad plus Benghazi. People are not as stupid as Progressives think. Just that ad plus Benghazi has certainty of derailing her candidacy. Add her support for Obamacare (2nd) and this loss (3rd) plus general dissatisfaction of people with too big Government and “family presidency” (Bushes, Clintons?) and as the last bit layer her lack of accomplishing anything as Secretary of State… Certain 0 in general election. Likely loss in primaries despite the name and gender.

      • Captain Obvious says:

        Who can beat her? I just don’t see anyone from either party who’s currently. Granted it is a long time until Election Day…..

  8. CrankyGeeksFan says:

    I wonder how many of those contracts involved Blackwater, Xe Services, Academi. (Same company – different name.) It is a major State Department contractor for security.

    A couple of years ago, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense couldn’t even be audited because their records were so incomplete.

    The problem that I have is that she might delegate tasks out too much; sort of like her 2008 presidential campaign.

    I used to be a contract manager for a billion dollar corp. Small potatoes compared to the US Gub. Every year when I read these stories about Billions Gong Missing, I think: BS!

    I, being near perfect, never had to do it, but if you are missing a contract==call the other guy up and get a copy. Easy Peasy.

    I don’t think this stuff ($$) gets lost. It gets spent on Black Ops.

  16. ECPotter says:

    Hillary Clinton, like other Secretaries of State, spend an enormous amount of time on the road conducting diplomacy. And, it appears, clearly, that these underscored contract problems began prior to Clinton’s tenure.

    “Specifically, in two joint audits conducted with DoD OIG,5 we found that, for two task orders valued in excess of $1 billion, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs had neither ensured that the COR for the Civilian Police contract in Afghanistan established or maintained contracting files that were complete and easily accessible, nor finalized and fully implemented standard operating procedures for maintaining COR files. Also, in a joint audit with SIGIR, 6 we reviewed four task orders from the Worldwide Personal Protective Services II contract, with an estimated total cost of $1 billion as ofMay 29, 2008, and found that COR files maintained in both Washington, DC, and Baghdad, Iraq, were not accessible, complete, or maintained in accordance with Department policy. “

  17. Once is ENOUGH! says:

    Seems to me this is about the umpteenth time this crap has happened with ol Hark (HRC) Face. The first time we that we know of was with WHITEWATER (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitewater_controversy)!

    Then there was “Travel-gate” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Travelgate).

    Then there was “File-gate” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filegate).

    And I seem to even recall another little ditty that just recently ended over Benghazi Libya! So what a surprise it is to be hearing of this next incident with a Clinton where BILLIONS of dollars are missing. Ya. Right! Slick Willy? More like “Slipper-illy” (Slippery Hillary)!

    Seriously. Can’t anyone in the press connect the dots? Or is it because all anyone can look at is that living model of a what a leftist lame-brain with power will do? Or could it be because this is now considered to be “ancient history” nearly a YEAR after she left office (on 2/1/13)?!

    So don’t any of you leftist “pressies” go looking for any facts now. And whatever you do, don’t follow the money that we all know the right wing nuts have safely tucked away. Be sure and not do your JOBS since it just might piss off your boss over there in Red Square.

      Really? I remember a photo of a pallet loaded with a cubic yard of U$A Cash in the back of a C-130 (C-7?) for delivery in Afghanistan. The only “paperwork” involved was the money itself.

      To the plus side: I do assume when the Clintons steal cash, they steal it for themselves. But with the Pukes, they are happy to steal it from any source and give it to anyone in the top 1% Criminal RICH class. Its the worst of class warfare—I mean, cutting food programs so that ANY rich person can buy another investment property.

      That really sucks.

    It was noted in my AREA, MY TOWN, was supposed to have the Town paper work and billings delivered to the STATE, every year.
    I sent a letter to the AG, about strange things, and it came about that the SMALL town I live in, hadnt sent anything in for 10 years..

  19. Captain Obvious says:

    I just did the math. The State Department’s annual budget is billion. So over 4 years 6 billion would be a 2% variance. On second thought, this won’t stick.

      I really gotta proof before submitting.

      Annual budget is 57 billion.

      • It's only your money says:

        If doctors dropped 2% of the babies they delivered, that would be 2 babies out of 100. No big deal?

        How about 2 crashed planes for every 100 flights? Welcome aboard.

        • Captain Obvious says:

          You’re obviously not a risk analyst. Let’s say you get paid $100,000 per year. Even before taxes. I’ll bet that I could find $2000 in your spending and budget that you couldn’t account for. That doesn’t mean that you manage money badly, but 2% in a budget is a rounding and adjustment problem.

          2% in people’s lives (your examples) are significant. You just just equated money to people’s lives. Never a good comparison.

          • Go Figure says:

            Accepting $6 billion as a “rounding and adjustment problem” guarantees enough perpetual corruption by public servants that ensures things will never get any better in government.

            Percentages don’t make sense when the result is such a large ABSOLUTE sum of money. If you don’t agree, re-read the first sentence.

            How many lives could be saved with $6 billion?

    Go ahead, wingnuts. Bash her for being a woman. Bash her for being a Clinton. Keep flogging Benghazi. It doesn’t matter. You got nothin’. All your potential presidential candidates are pathetic.

    Your consolation, and it’s significant, is that your clever gerrymandering and voter suppression laws will likely give you control of Congress, for a while. Until it becomes so obvious that you are do-nothing crazies and greedheads that America vomits you up and leaves you on the street. Look at Rush Limbaugh. He can’t even get any advertisers for his BS any more.
