Insitu Drone Contracts False Claims

Boeing subsidiary Insitu Inc. paid $25 million to settle allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by knowingly submitting materially false cost and pricing data for contracts with the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and the U.S. Navy to supply and operate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Between 2009 and 2017, Insitu entered into five contracts with the Navy and two contracts with SOCOM for the supply and operation of UAVs, also known as “drones.” The settlement resolved allegations that Insitu knowingly induced the government to award these contracts at inflated prices by proposing cost and pricing data for new parts and materials while using less expensive recycled, refurbished, reconditioned, or reconfigured parts.
