The purpose of this research was to propose data analysis methods to discover statistical relationships of contract data contained in the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) and fraud indicators. The primary means by which this research was conducted was by analyzing a sample of contracts associated with fraud investigations in the FPDS and collecting any statistical data related to types of contracts, the fraud statute investigated, and other contract variables attributable to FPDS. The objective was to determine if there is a statistical relationship between contracts associated with fraud investigations and contract variables from a contracting officer, auditor, or investigating official’s perspective. The research findings were based on examples and illustrations of statistical relationships discovered and analyses explored as well as proposed applications of use for the data in detecting fraud in Department of Defense (DoD) contracts.
