How many DHS contractors are there really?

Consulting firm overestimated the number by 100,000

The Virginia-based consulting firm LMI may need to brush up on its adding skills after it misrepresented the amount of contractors at the Homeland Security Department by about 100,000, reports the Federal Times blog Fedline.

DHS hosts about 110,000 contractors, not the original 210,000 figure given by LMI, itself a DHS contractor.

According to the Fedline blog, the firm blamed the miscalculation on a faulty algorithm it used and Congress was notified about the problem in January.
