SUTTON, Circuit Judge. William Kozerski pleaded guilty to wire fraud after he obtained six government construction contracts by impersonating a disabled veteran. His Sentencing Guidelines range depends on how to calculate the “loss” for this crime. The district court treated the loss as the aggregate difference between Kozerski’s bids and the next-lowest bids, about $250,000. The government argues the loss amount should be the total value of the contracts without deducting the value of the services provided, about $12 million. We agree with the district court and affirm.
