Lockheed Martin settled alleged violations of the False Claims Act, 31 U.S.C. § 3729, et seq., and Federal Acquisition Regulations in a building lease agreement with NASA. “The dispute focused upon the government’s contention that as part of the costs included in the 10 year lease agreement negotiated in 1992, [Lockheed] included charges associated with promissory notes it held as interest bearing debt. This debt was concealed in the lease costs and charged to NASA during the course of the contract.”
