Audit faults contract awards to security company Blackwater

Blackwater obtained dozens of small business contracts worth more than $110 million even though the private security company exceeded size limits for a small business, according to a federal audit released today. The Inspector General of the Small Business Administration said Blackwater, based in Moyock, N.C., obtained 39 contracts set aside for small businesses from 2005 through 2007.
