Radar Antenna Pricing (E-2C Hawkeye Aircraft)

Lockheed settled allegations that Randtron Systems (part of Lockheed Martin Tactical Systems) did not give pertinent information about radar antennae to the government that would have lowered their price, in violation of the Truth in Negotiations Act, 10 U.S.C. § 2306a, and the False Claims Act, 31 U.S.C. § 3729, et seq. “The government alleged that during negotiations for four production subcontracts from 1986 through 1988 Randtron failed to make required disclosures to Grumman and Department of Defense officials that it had substantial quantities of excess parts and materials left over from prior antenna production jobs that it intended to use in the contracts under negotiation. The government claimed that if Randtron had made such disclosures the Navy would have negotiated lower prices for the radar antennas.”
