United States ex rel. Thornton v. SAIC (False Claims Act Violations)

SAIC was among three government contractors which paid “the United States a total of $230,000 to settle allegations [of False Claims Act violations] in which they allegedly failed to properly test electrical cables installed at a U.S. Treasury facility under construction in Fort Worth, Texas, that prints money…

The United States alleged that subcontractors falsified the testing of certain power cables during the construction of the Western Currency Production Facility in Fort Worth. The improperly tested cables were ultimately replaced.

SAIC was the prime contractor on the project. AlliedSignal, through its Bendix Field Engineering Corporation subsidiary, was retained to install certain hardware and AlliedSignal, in turn, awarded a subcontract to Lloyd Electric’s predecessor, J.V. Clark Electric Co. Inc., to install electrical wiring and cables at the facility.” According to a company spokesperson, SAIC’s share of the settlement was $125,000.
