MH-60S: Flying low The Project on Government Oversight (POGO) reports that New Haven, Connecticut WTNH News Channel 8 reporter Alan Cohn made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on March 4, 2004 to the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) for Corrective Action Requests (CARs) related to helicopter-maker Sikorsky’s work. CARs are requests to contractors by the DCMA to fix the causes of recurring problems that put the contractor out of compliance with its contract with the military. After a series of appeals, DCMA partially granted Cohn’s FOIA request. Sikorsky then filed suit against the DCMA and DOD in the US District Court for the District of Columbia on December 12, 2005 on four counts. POGO’s blog has more details.
