The DoD's watchdog office will examine additional contracts handled by the Air Force procurement official Darleen Druyun - who was convicted of violating conflict-of-interest laws - in addition to the controversial Boeing contract that spawned the original investigation that led to her nine-month jail sentence, according to Reuters. Projects coming under scrutiny include the JSTARS surveillance system led by Northrop Grumman and the JPATS air training system led by Raytheon. All told, 10 contracts are under review, with three more that may be added later. The Pentagon originally forwarded eight contracts for review when the scandal first broke. The reviews are scheduled to be completed before May.
