Iraq, Afghanistan, Forward Positions Whistleblower

It seems that our troops are always deployed in some forward position, such as Iraq or Afghanistan. Even though those who need and are receiving our protection are sometimes the least grateful, our Federal government seems intent on deploying our troops. Troop deployment requires an unparalleled amount of coordination, supplies, and support. Troop deployment cannot happen without the support and assistance of defense contractors. Fraud committed by these defense contractors cost U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars. Fraud committed by these defense contractors may even endanger our troops. A potential whistleblower can obtain a reward under the False Claims Act for departments of defense fraud. If you are aware of a defense contractor committing fraud, please contact the whistleblower lawyers at The Rice Law Firm, LLC.

Whistleblowers have saved the defense department billions of dollars by uncovering certain types of defense contractor fraud

Testing and Reliability Fraud occurs when a defense contractor falsely claims that its product met or passed required testing. Product performance keeps our troops safe. Cut corners cost lives. This often occurs in fixed-price contracts.

No-bid contracts or sole-source supplier contracts are used most often when a defense contractor is believed to have a certain special expertise or when the defense department must award the contract quickly. In a no-bid or sole-source contract, the defense contractor is contractually required and legally required under the Truth-in-Negotiations Act to disclose all relevant information about its costs to defense departments during the negotiation process. Fraud occurs when a defense contractor fraudulently inflates its costs or fails to disclose certain information.

Product substitution fraud occurs when a defense contractors agrees to build products using certain types or quality of parts or components, but fraudulently uses different or inferior parts.Product substitution fraud also occurs when a defense contractor agrees to source products from American companies, but to increase their profit margin at the expense of American companies, purchases products from unauthorized, foreign companies.
