Virginia Defense Contractor Will Pay $400,000 for Billing Government While in Default Under a Government Contract

The Informatics Applications Group Inc. (TIAG), a Reston, Virginia defense contractor performing an Army IT contract at a Texas military installation, has agreed to pay $400,000 to settle claims that its personnel obtained restricted military data and that the company used the information to submit bids for other contracts.

According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office in announcing the settlement agreement on May 7, 2015, TIAG’s employees are alleged to have misused their access between June and September 2012 while performing under an Army IT contract at the U.S. Army Medical Information Technology Center at Fort Sam Houston.

Misuse of the data put TIAG into default on the Army contract, and while in default, TIAG nevertheless submitted invoices for work performed between June and September 2012 totaling in excess of $270,000. The settlement agreement resolves civil allegations that TIAG violated the False Claims Act by submitting the invoices.

Under Federal law, individuals who report fraud to the government are sometimes entitled to monetary awards. If you are aware of wrongdoing and would like to know more about your rights, please click here.
