Overcharging on Food Contracts (Suspension)

In November 2009, the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) temporarily suspended Agility (formerly known as Public Warehousing Company KSC) from government contracting pending the completion of an investigation into allegations the company overcharged the Department of Defense on contracts to supply food to U.S. troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Jordan. Agility was indicted on charges of conspiracy, fraud, making false statements and submitting false claims. The government alleged that PWC inflated food prices and submitted false information on 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 criminal misdemeanor offense for theft of government funds. Pursuant to an administrative agreement, DLA agreed to release a claim of $27.9 million against Agility and lift the suspension.
