False Claims Regarding Credits on Federal Contracts

In June 2005, Hochtief AG subsidiary Turner Construction Company paid $6.6 million to settle allegations that it received credits for bonds on dozens of federal contracts without passing the credits along to the federal government. The contracts included one for the construction of the VA’s Boston Medical Center in Massachusetts, one with the GSA for the construction of a courthouse in Islip, New York, numerous Navy contracts, and several other construction contracts or subcontracts with these and other agencies. As part of the settlement, Turner also forfeited claims valued at $2.8 million under contracts with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of the Navy.
