WASHINGTON, DC, February 24, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging managers who work for any type of company providing logistical services, or support services to the United States Department of Defense to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they have proof of any kind of multi-million dollar fraud or overbilling. We are extremely interested in contractors fleecing the DOD in Iraq or Afghanistan.
"However we are just as interested in hearing from employees of contractors with proof their employer is ripping off the DOD anywhere in the world. As we would like to explain anytime the rewards for this type of information can be significant." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
In February 2016 the United States Department of Justice announced a contractor to the Department of Defense has agreed to pay $7.4 million to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by double billing and inflating labor costs in connection with a contract for firefighting and fire protection services in Iraq.
The contractor provided U.S. military bases with firefighting and fire protection services for the Army's contract for logistical support in the military theater, known as LOGCAP III. LOGCAP III is the third generation of contracts under the Army's Logistical Civil Augmentation Program.
The government alleged that from 2008 to 2010 the contractor inflated its labor costs by billing the salaries of certain managers as direct costs under the subcontract, when those salaries had already been charged as indirect costs. The government further alleged the contractor artificially inflated its labor rate by counting its costs for holidays, vacation, sick leave, rest and recuperation and other variable labor costs twice in calculating the rate.
In this instance the whistleblower will receive $1.332 million.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging a current or former employee of almost any kind of company providing services to the Department of Defense to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if they have proof their employer was or is cheating, or overbilling the DOD for services never rendered. This could include roads, or hospitals never completed in Iraq or Afghanistan, military subcontractor employees that never spent the time that was billed for training the Afghan National Army, or the Army of Iraq, transportation or logistics contractors that grossly overbilled the DOD, or suppliers that artificially inflated the price of food, fuel, or water, etc.
For more information a potential whistleblower is urged to contact the Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
Important Tip from the Corporate Whistleblower Center
: "Do not go to your current, or former employer and demand money to keep your mouth shut, because that could be extortion, and or do not go to the news media about proof you might possess of wrongdoing. Any public revelation of a whistleblower's proof could ruin the possibility of a reward as we would like to explain anytime at 866-714-6466."
