Bid-Rigging on NAVO MSRC Contract

David Magee, a former employee at the Naval Oceanographic Major Shared Resource Center (NAVO MSRC) at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi filed a False Claims Act lawsuit against Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC); Applied Enterprise Solutions (AES); Lockheed Martin; Dale Galloway, Chief Executive Officer of AES; Stephen Adamec, former Director of NAVO MSRC; and Robert Knesel, Deputy Director of NAVO MSRC. In April 2004, the General Services Administration (GSA) awarded a $3.2 billion contract to provide support services to the NAVO MSRC to SAIC, which partnered with subcontractors AES and Lockheed Martin Space Operations. SAIC was paid a total of $115 million under the contract, of which Lockheed Martin was paid $2 million. Magee alleged that Adamec and Knesel conspired with Galloway, AES, SAIC, and Lockheed to ensure that SAIC and its teaming partners were awarded the contract. In January 2011, Lockheed settled the lawsuit for $2 million. See related SAIC pending instance, “Bid-Rigging on NAVO MSRC Contract”.
