Mutual reported expenditures that substantially complied with the Federal Acquisition Regulation and the Medicare contract provisions.  However, Mutual reported, in its cost proposals, $1,266 that was not allowable.  These costs were for entertainment ($840) and lobbying ($426), and as such, did not meet the criteria for Federal reimbursement.  We recommended that Mutual refund to the Federal Government the $1,266 of unallowable costs.  Mutual agreed with our findings.
