CREW: Department of the Army: Regarding Contractors with Ties to Rep. Rogers

On September 22, 2011, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with the Department of the Air force, and the Defense Logistics Agency, seeking additional information about a contract awarded to Phoenix Products Inc., a company with close ties to Representative Harold “Hal” Rogers (R-KY). Previously, on August 16, 2011, and June 7, 2011, CREW filed FOIA requests with the Army seeking information about the contract between the Army and Phoenix. The information requested in these follow-up FOIAs will help CREW determine whether the contracts resulted in an worthwhile product.
