GAO was requested to review the appropriateness of a termination of a 1997 Indian Health Services request for proposals to provide computed tomographic scanning (CT Scan) services for the Blackfeet and Crow Service Units in Montana. Specifically, you were concerned about the allegations that Indian Health Services negotiated in bad faith with a Native American, women-owned, small business. GAO could find no indication that IHS negotiated in bad faith. GAO's Office of Special Investigations had previously looked into the case in December 1998 (Control Number 40212). GAO determined that the case was not within the scope of ongoing work and referred the case to the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General (HHS/OIG). In June 1999, the HHS/OIG issued a report concluding that the allegations were unwarranted. A copy of the HHS/OIG report is enclosed.
