KBR Employee Sentenced for Accepting Kickbacks

Former KBR employee, Stephen Lowell Seamans, was sentenced to 12 months in prison for his role in a kickback scheme with Tamimi Global Company, a Saudi Arabian company. Seamans was also ordered to pay $380,130 in restitution and a $200 assessment. The scheme resulted in Mohammad Shabbir Khan, a Tamimi executive, paying $133,000 in kickbacks to Seamans who was responsible for negotiation, execution and administration of subcontracts on KBR’s behalf under the U.S. Army’s prime contract known as LOGCAP III. Khan paid Seamans the kickbacks to secure two subcontracts for Tamimi Global Company for military dining facilities: a $14.4 million dollar subcontract at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, and a subcontract of $7.4 million dollars at a palace in Baghdad, Iraq. According to the Excluded Parties List System, Seamans was debarred on June 27, 2007.
