Government Procurement Fraud
The United States government is the largest purchaser of goods and services in this country and has millions of employees that require supplies and expenses. From food for our troops to schools supplies the government has thousands of contracts with companies in every industry to acquire the supplies it needs. With billions of dollars being spent on supplies and services there is an enormous opportunity for fraud and wasteful spending. Government Procurement fraud is committed when some kind of scheme is implemented to manipulate the bidding and award system of contracts.
The False Claims Act can help whistleblowers with first hand information on government procurement fraud file a case to remedy the injustices committed. With the enormity of government contracts and transactions it is impossible for the government to root out all fraudulent transactions. Whistleblowers have been enormously effective in combating fraud, waste and abuse in this area.
Government Procurement Fraud Examples
- Bid rigging between companies to acquire contracts or drive of the contract price
- Kick backs to secure contracts
- Over charging for good or services or not providing the government with the best price
- Violating or not fulfilling a government contract
