Campbell v. Lockheed Martin (Jet Navigation Contracts)

Lockheed settled a case involving violations of the Truth in Negotiations Act, 10 U.S.C. § 2306a, and the False Claims Act, 31 U.S.C. § 3729, et seq. “The qui tam suit accused Lockheed Martin of deliberately inflating the cost of four contracts for the purchase of navigation and targeting pods for military jets. Campbell’s complaint alleged that Lockheed Martin violated the Act by knowingly failing, among other things, to provide current, accurate and complete cost and pricing data to Air Force contract negotiators. Government contractors are required by the Truth in Negotiations Act to provide accurate and complete cost data to government contract negotiators.”
