Army Contractor Agrees to $10 Million Settlement to Resolve FCA Allegations
After a coordinated investigation by the Commercial Litigation Branch of the Justice Department’s Civil Division, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado and the Defense Criminal Investigative Services (DCIS), First RF Corporation has agreed to pay $10 million to settle False Claim Act violations. The allegations arose over a 2005 Army contract with First RF for the sale of electronic warfare antennas. At the time, the antennas were urgently needed. First RF is accused of misrepresenting the cost to manufacture the antennas, thereby inflating the price paid to First RF by the United States’ Army. First RF is an antenna and radio system company in Boulder, Colorado. The $10 million settlement did not require First RF to admit liability.
