Overcharging Federal Agencies for Ground Delivery Service

United Parcel Service agreed to pay the United States $8.4 million to resolve allegations that it overcharged federal agencies for package delivery services under a General Services Administration (GSA) contract. The settlement resolved allegations that from 2007 to 2014, UPS failed to follow the Price Reductions Clause of the GSA contract, which required UPS to provide GSA with certain lower prices offered to another customer, resulting in the government paying more than it should have for package deliveries. The settlement covered ground delivery service.
