The Corporate Whistleblower Center says,"We believe contractors that are providing any kind of service to the federal government, that are also inflating their bills, or overstating the number of hours worked on a project is the perfect whistleblower reward case, because it is so black, and white. Either the contractor billed for the correct amount of hours, or they did not. Our only caveat is the wrongdoing must involve amounts over one million dollars."
On May 7th 2013, the United States Department of Justice released a press release that stated, "The United States and CH2M Hill, CHG hourly employees involved in the cleanup routinely overstated the number of hours they worked, and CHG management condoned the practice and submitted inflated claims to the Department of Energy that included the fraudulently claimed hours. The agreed to settlement was for $18.5 million dollars."
