Overcharging on Food Contracts (Criminal Case)

Agility (formerly known as Public Warehousing Company KSC) and two subsidiaries were charged with conspiracy, fraud, making false statements, and submitting false claims relating to contracts to supply food to U.S. troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Jordan. The government alleged that Agility overcharged the Department of Defense by inflating food prices and submitting false information on food supply contracts awarded between 2003 and 2005. In May 2017, Agility Public Warehousing Co. KSC agreed to resolve all criminal, civil, and administrative claims arising from the matter. Agility agreed to pay $95 million to resolve civil fraud claims, to forgo administrative claims against the government seeking $249 million in additional payments under its contracts, and to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of submitting an artificially inflated invoice to the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia in June 2007 (for which it paid a $125 special assessment). Pursuant to an administrative agreement, DLA agreed to release a claim of $27.9 million against Agility and lift its contracting suspension.
