Types of Whistleblower Cases

Defense Contractor Fraud

Defense contract fraud can come in many different forms, and the government relies heavily on whistleblowers to help expose new schemes and fraudulent actions. Defense contract fraud that a False Claims Act whistleblower might expose may include:

  • Obtaining contracts through false statements
  • Misrepresenting the cost of a project, or “underbidding” on contracts
  • Overcharging / Over-billing
  • Omitting resources available to the company for a project
  • Bid-rigging
  • Contract-negotiation fraud
  • Use of cheap or inferior products on the project
  • Failure to follow contract specifications
  • Failure to complete the project to government requirements

If you have information that a government contractor has collected money for a project through false statements or claims, or has failed to comply with contract specifications, you may be able to blow the whistle by pursuing a qui tam lawsuit.  A successful qui tam whistleblowers under the federal False Claims Act can receive an award of between 15% and 30% of the amount recovered.
