False Claims on Invoices

Boeing and United Space Alliance agreed to pay a total of $825,000 and to give up their rights to $1.2 million in unpaid invoices to settle allegations of False Claims Acts violations, 31 U.S.C. § 3729-3733, et. seq. submitted to the government between 1986 and 1992 under NASA’s Space Shuttle and Space Station Freedom programs. “In 1993, the United States sued Omniplan and secured a consent judgment, but the company went bankrupt before it was able to pay the full judgment. On January 11, 2000, the government filed a civil suit alleging that [Rockwell Space Operations Company (ROSC)- later purchased by Boeing] violated the False Claims Act by knowingly submitting to NASA the improper Omniplan invoices. The complaint alleged that RSOC knew or should have known that the subcontractor’s invoices contained false claims. See Boeing Company misconduct instance “Improper NASA Invoices.”
