WASHINGTON, March 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging an employee of a software or technology company providing services to the federal government via the Government Services Administration to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 about what could be substantial financial compensation via federal rewards if your employer is ripping off a federal agency or if the technology company is not being compliant with a GSA contract. Recently a whistleblower was awarded $10 million dollars for this type of information." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center fears that many employees of technology companies providing services to the federal government will look the other way when their employer is overbilling the government for hours never worked, for software that does not work, and or for services never provided. Recently it has come to light that the CIA hired outside contractors to assist them with creating viruses to infect people's computers or cell phones. This federal agency no longer has control of these viruses. How incredibly stupid is that? "In our opinion this is just one more glaring example of contractors ripping off the government, and the taxpayers left holding the bag.
"Most astonishingly of all it would appear that federal agencies would that prefer to hide the misdeeds of their contractors than publicly expose them-because public exposure of a contractor could make the federal agency's senior management look incompetent or worse. There was a recent exception to this rule."
In March 2017, the US Department of Justice announced a $45 million-dollar settlement with a technology company that was providing software and software maintenance services to the federal government. Allegedly the company did not fully and accurately disclose its discounting practices to GSA contracting officers. In addition, allegedly the company gave their commercial clients discount pricing and failed to provide the same discounts to the General Services Administration.
As noted in this instance the whistleblower will receive $10.195 million.
The Whistleblower Center says, "If you work for a technology or software company that has severely overbilled the federal government or has failed to abide by the terms of their contract-such as providing discounts or they have delivered products to the government that do not work please call us at 866-714-6466 and let's discuss what you can prove and what the reward potential might be. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might be worth?" http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower: Do not go to the government first if you want to become a whistleblower: The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It's a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information either. Any type of public revelation of a whistleblower's information could destroy the prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a government contractor or individual to come clean about overbilling the federal government out of millions of dollars."
