The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Companies that receive federal grant money are particularly prone to fraudulent behavior by overbilling the US government. This group includes any type of company including transportation contractors, food contractors providing federally funded school lunch programs, research facilities, universities, defense contractors, you name it. If the fraud is over a million dollars, and the wrongdoing involves a federal grant, we want to hear about it and can help you determine if you have a strong case. Just call us at 866-714-6466, and we will explain how the reward program works."
A recent settlement better illustrates the types of contractors the Corporate Whistleblower Center is referring to. According to the Department of Justice, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) recently agreed to pay $11.75 million to settle allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by allegedly overbilling the United States for their services. According to the press release, SAIC received six federal grants from the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and Federal Emergency Management Agency to train first responders when responding to terrorism attacks. SAIC’s proposal stated they would use much more expensive personnel to complete the project than they actually used, resulting in allegedly knowingly overbilling the government.
In the case the whistleblower reward is expected to be $2 million.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are convinced there are thousands of US citizens who know their company is overbilling the federal government. Anyone who has proof of overbilling the government, as long as the amounts exceed one million dollars, can call us at 866-714-6466 anytime for a confidential conversation.” http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
