WASHINGTON -- The Defense Department said Tuesday that Halliburton Co. will reimburse the government $27.4 million for potential overcharges related to food services in Iraq and Kuwait.

The amount includes $16 million that a Halliburton unit may have overcharged for meals it never served at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait, as well as $11.4 million in previously undisclosed overcharges at four other dining facilities in Kuwait and Iraq.

Lt. Col. Rose-Ann L. Lynch, a Pentagon spokeswoman, said Defense auditors also are reviewing billing at 53 other dining facilities that the Halliburton unit, KBR, operates through subcontractors in both Iraq and Kuwait. ::more:: www.tdn.com...
