False Claims on Army Truck Contract

The United States filed a complaint against BAE Systems Tactical Vehicle Systems for allegedly overcharging the Army on a contract to build trucks known as Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTVs). The government alleged that BAE knowingly inflated the price of the FMTV contract by concealing cost and pricing data on numerous parts and materials during contract negotiations, despite having certified that the data it had disclosed was accurate, complete, and current. The government alleged violations of the Truth-in-Negotiations Act and the False Claims Act. In June 2017, it was announced that both parties submitted a joint stipulation of dismissal with the court.
