WASHINGTON, May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging an employee of a contractor providing services to any federal agency to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 about possible rewards if the contractor is cheating the government by not adhering to their contract-and or by going cheap when it comes to materials. We could be talking about a whistleblower with knowledge of a contractor that is going cheap on equipment to be used by the US Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines, a contractor supplying substandard food products to the Department of Agriculture, a federally funded highway contractor using substandard concrete and on and on.
"If the government is getting cheated by a contractor and you can prove it and the amount of money involved is substantial---it is worth your time to discover what the potential whistleblower reward might be." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
In April 2017, the Justice Department announced a contractor doing work on a nuclear reactor agreed to pay $4.6 million to resolve the government's allegation that they used defective steel reinforcing bars (rebar) for a contract to construct a Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear waste treatment facility.
The lawsuit alleged that the DOE paid the contractor a premium to supply rebar that met stringent regulatory standards for the Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication and Reactor Irradiation Services facility in the DOE's Savannah River site near Aiken, South Carolina. The lawsuit further alleged that one-third of the rebar supplied by E&P and used in the construction was found to be defective. E&P subsequently replaced some of the defective rebar.
In this instance, the whistleblower's reward has not yet been announced, but it is expected to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "If you have proof your employer or a company that competes with your employer is involved in overbilling the government for substandard work or materials and or for work never done please call us about potential whistleblower rewards anytime at 866-714-6466. Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it could have been worth?" http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: 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 or cheating the federal government out of millions of dollars."
