U.S. ex rel. Walker v. PAE, et al. (Alleged Bid-Rigging)

PAE Government Services agreed to pay $1.15 million to resolve False Claims Act allegations of engaging in a bid-rigging scheme on a U.S. Army contract for services in Afghanistan. In 2007, the Army awarded PAE (then a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin) a contract to provide vehicle maintenance capabilities and training services to the Afghanistan National Army. PAE partnered with RM Asia (HK) Limited to supply and warehouse vehicle parts. The government alleged that former managers of PAE and RM Asia steered purchase orders to companies owned by the former managers and their relatives. In a related criminal investigation into the scheme, the government obtained guilty pleas from former PAE program manager Keith Johnson and his wife, Angela Gregory Johnson (see Lockheed Martin instance, “U.S. v. Johnson (Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud)”).
