U.S. v. Denault (CityTime Contract Fraud)

Former SAIC executive Gerard Denault was charged with receiving at least $5 million in illegal payments in connection with his work as SAIC’s project manager on the New York City information technology project CityTime. Denault was also charged with wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy. Denault is alleged to have accepted $5.6 million in kickbacks while steering more than $450 million in city funds to Technodyne LLC, the principal subcontractor on the CityTime project. Denault also allegedly submitted inflated bills to the city. In May 2011, SAIC announced it had fired Denault and would reimburse the city $2.47 million for Denault’s false billings, the exact amount of which had not yet been determined. In November 2013, Denault was convicted of five counts of fraud and one count of witness tampering. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison and ordered to forfeit $9.5 million.
