Government watchdog calls for banning Halliburton from contracts
19 Aug. 2004

WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 (HalliburtonWatch.org) -- The government should consider suspending or debarring Halliburton from receiving future government contracts given their inability to account for $1.8 billion and numerous cases of corporate misconduct, the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) said today. “By law, the federal government is prohibited from doing future business with risky companies," said Danielle Brian, Executive Director of POGO. "Halliburton’s accounting fiasco is the clearest example we have seen in years that merits suspension or debarment by the government," she said. "Halliburton is treating our nation’s taxpayer dollars like Monopoly money.”
