Rocket System Support Contract Mischarge

“Lockheed Martin Corporation agreed to pay the United States $1.4 million dollars to resolve allegations of mischarging the United States Army Aviation and Missile Command.

In 1999, Lockheed Martin voluntarily disclosed inadvertent mischarging between its production and support contracts for the Multiple Launch Rocket System. These contracts are administered by the Army in Huntsville, Alabama. A subsequent audit performed by the Defense Contract Audit Agency challenged the scope of the reported mischarging. Following a cooperative investigation, the parties participated in voluntary mediation and reached a compromise settlement of the disputed amount.”
