Defense contractor fraud can be pursued by whistleblowers in 3 primary ways: The False Claims Act, The SEC Whistleblower Program and The IRS Whistleblower Program, depending on the specific allegations involved. Under some circumstances it may make sense to file multiple whistleblower claims utilizing more than one of these whistleblower programs.
Defense industry contractors transact enormous amounts of goods and services with the U.S. government, as well as operating on a global basis, making it an industry ripe for fraud and abuse. If the government is defrauded directly by a defense contractor, the likely course of action will be a False Claims Act whistleblower case and/or a IRS whistleblower action. Given that many defense contractors operate on a worldwide basis, they can be subject to prosecution for violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act as well, which would be brought as a whistleblower action under the SEC Whistleblower Program.
