Border wall contract to be audited
The Pentagon's inspector general says the border wall construction contract with Dickinson's Fisher Sand and Gravel company will be audited.
The company was awarded a contract earlier this month to build 31 miles of wall in Arizona.
House Homeland Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson asked for a review of the contract last week.
Thompson cited concerns that the proposals did not meet requirements.
Fisher industries says it welcomes any audit, maintaining that it won the bid with the lowest-priced technically acceptable offer.
