>>>Yeah, millions of dollars in fines vs. billions of dollars in profit really dissuades those naughty contractors

It does actually. My company was fined ~700 million about three years ago, and now they come down hard on the employees to charge time precisely. Even if we take a barthroom break, we're supposed to subtract that 0.1 or 0.2 from the government project and put it in an overhead account. My company doesn't want to be fined again.
