Question three
There are several steps that the government can take to control the actions of contractors
who spend public money in government’s name. Firstly, the government can inflict sanctions
upon their operations. In this case, sanction refers to punitive measures such withdrawal of
operating licenses and restrictions as to the operation territories. Such sanctions are important as
they serve as disciplinary measures. Infliction of punishment exposes such contractors to loss in
terms of profits and potential clients who would have contracted with them. Such loss serves as a
corrective measure that ensures that they do not misuse taxpayers’ money in government’s name.
Additionally, the government can take legal and administrative actions against such
contractors. For example the government can sue the contractor in a court of law for various
crimes such as fraud and conspiracy, depending on the situation at hand. In event the government
wins in such a case, it is awarded lots of money that act as a punishment to the contractor.
Additionally, such money acts a caution to the other contractors. Additionally, it is possible to
take administrative actions against such a contractor. For example, regulatory commissions
establish tribunals that decide the fate of such a contractor. Notably, such commissions can order
for closure of the contracting company.
Finally, the government can enact legislation that prohibits wrongful expenditure of
public money by contractors in its name. The legislation should provide explicit provisions
against government robbing as well as the rightful ways to spend taxpayers’ money. Notably, the
law will act as reference point in case a contractor is caught exploiting taxpayers’ money.
