US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia presents award to DCAA Investigative Support Auditor

By DCAA Staff Writer

DCAA Investigative Support Auditor Ms. Gina Vaughan received an award for her work as part of a team investigating an extensive procurement fraud scheme. The case involved conspiracy and a scheme related to government contracts suppling items to the Marine Corps, Army, Coast Guard, and various state National Guards. The defendants pled guilty to charges related to fraudulently importing goods made in China and labeling them as made in the US. This extensive procurement fraud resulted in losses to the United States of more than $7 million. Five defendants were sentenced to prison terms ranging from 23 to 58 months. Ms. Gina Vaughan summarized thousands of pages of bank records and ultimately traced the fraud proceeds to the defendants.
