SEARCHING FOR FRAUD: A team of specially trained investigators plans to hunker down in an Army office north of Detroit on Monday to begin poring over hundreds of Iraq war contracts in search of rigged deals.

FIRST PRIORITY: Investigators are starting with a sampling of the roughly 6,000 contracts worth $2.8 billion issued by an Army office in Kuwait.

POSSIBLE RESULTS: Based on what the team finds, the probe may expand and the number of Army military and civilian employees accused of accepting bribes and kickbacks could grow.
