DoJ Joins Suit Against SAIC

Kara Reeder

The Department of Justice has joined a false claims suit against Science Applications International Corp. According to The Washington Post, the suit alleges that SAIC conspired with with federal officials to get the $3.2 billion contract and then destroyed documents to cover up the scheme.

 

The bid-rigging charges are related to a 2004 contract for a computing center at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. The suit centers around three government officials: H. Dale Galloway, Stephen Adamec Jr. and Robert Knesel. The lawsuit says that for six months before there was even a request to create the new center, the three men secretly collaborated, providing SAIC non-public information that was never released to other prospective bidders.

 

SAIC denies the allegations. The DoJ is seeking a monetary judgement that is three times the actual damages the government suffered, plus civil penalties under the False Claims Act, reports The Wall Street Journal.
