Government contractor regulatory compliance and certifications for common procurement fraud violations.

The United States spends Billions through schedule solicitations. The overwhelming majority of this contracted procurement is done via contracts or schedules with privately owned businesses in the United States and around the world.

Federal contractor fraud remains one of the most active areas of False Claims Act (FCA) litigation (both civil & criminal) under the Federal False Claims Act (FCA). Billions of dollars have already been recovered from schedule holders, largely as a result of Qui Tam Whistleblower’s acting under the Federal False Claims Act.
