Potential Overbilling on Iraq Police Training Contract

The United States filed a False Claims Act complaint against DynCorp International alleging that it knowingly submitted inflated claims in connection with the State Department’s CIVPOL contract, on which DynCorp trained Iraqi police forces and provided support services such as trainers, guards, translators, vehicles and living quarters for contractor personnel. The government alleges that, between April 2004 and December 2008, DynCorp knowingly allowed subcontractor Corporate Bank Financial Services and its affiliate, The Sandi Group (TSG), to charge excessive and unsubstantiated rates for hotel lodging, translator, security guard and driving services, and overhead expenses. The government also alleges that DynCorp added its own markup to the subcontractors’ excessive charges. In 2011, DynCorp paid $7.7 million and TSG paid $1.01 million to resolve other false claims allegations involving the CIVPOL contract (see DynCorp instance, “False Claims on Iraq Police Training Contract”).
