If the technology does not work, or if the company is involved in overbilling the rewards for this type of information could potentially be in the millions of dollars
(PRWEB) August 27, 2014
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging employees, or insiders, who have substantial proof a technology company is overbilling the federal government with inflated prices, or billing for services never rendered, to contact them at 866-714-6466, for more information concerning federal whistleblower programs. The Whistleblower Center has recently placed great emphasis in finding those who provide any kind of technology service to the federal government, and have proof of overbilling, or fraud, to contact them, because the potential for a significant reward is extremely high.
In a recent example the United State Justice Department intervened in a lawsuit against Symantec Corporation, alleging that Symantec submitted false claims to the United States on a General Services Administration (GSA) software contract.
According to a July, 2014 DOJ press release, "In 2007, Symantec entered into a Multiple Award Schedule contract with the GSA that allowed Symantec to sell software and related items directly to federal purchasers. The case alleges that Symantec knowingly provided the United States with inaccurate and incomplete information about the prices it was offering to its commercial customers during the negotiation and performance of the contract.
Allegedly, the GSA used Symantec’s disclosures about its commercial sales practices to negotiate the minimum discounts Symantec was required to provide government agencies that bought Symantec software. In addition, the contract required Symantec to update the GSA when commercial discounts improved and extend the same improved discounts to government purchasers. The suit the Justice Department alleges is that Symantec misrepresented its true commercial sales practices, ultimately leading to government customers receiving discounts far inferior to those Symantec gave to its commercial non-government customers. The contract at issue was in place from 2007 to 2012 and involved hundreds of millions of dollars in sales.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "As we would like to explain to a technology insider many of these GSA, or federal contracts contracts involve gigantic amounts of money for the company as in tens of millions, or hundreds of millions of dollars. If the technology does not work, or if the company is involved in overbilling the rewards for this type of information could potentially be in the millions of dollars. If you possess this type of information please call us anytime at 866-714-6466, so we can carefully explain federal whistleblower programs to you." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center:
- Do not go to the government first, if you are a major whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the federal government thinking they will help. Its a huge mistake. Frequently government officials could care less, or they are incompetent.”
- Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward.
- Do not try to force a government contractor, or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Fraud is so rampant among federal contractors, that any suggestion of exposure might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. We say, come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think its sufficient, we will help you find the right law firms, to assist in advancing your information.”
