Alan Simmons worked in Afghanistan as a training program coordinator for PAE Inc. (a Lockheed Martin subsidiary from 2006 to 2011) on a State Department contract to train and supply uniforms to Afghan correctional officers. The government alleged that Simmons and others created a subcontractor company through which they submitted fraudulent invoices from September 2008 through August 2009, causing the government to incur a loss of over $120,000. In May 2014, Simmons pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States.
