WASHINGTON, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "We are urging an employee of a government contractor that is out of compliance on a major government contract to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 about rewards. In a recent instance a whistleblower received approximately $30 million dollars for this exact type of information. The types of federal contracts we are focused on can produce huge taxpayer losses if the company/contractor is not living up to what they promised to do. As a result, the whistleblower rewards for this type of information can be huge as we would like to discuss." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
The types of whistleblower/employee the Center would like to hear from can prove their employer is not being honest about the quality of the product/services their company promised to provide the federal government-include:
- An employee of a defense contractor that lying to the government about the capabilities of a navy ship, an air force plane or a weapons system.
- An employee of a software company that is selling the federal government defective or not functional software or computer programing services.
- An employee of a solar or wind generation company that is lying about their profitability or functionality of their product after receiving a federal grant or funding.
- An employee of a transportation or logistics company that can prove their employer is overbilling the federal government by inflating fuel or operating costs for national or global services for the Department of Defense.
- An employee of company overbilling the EPA for Super Fund Site cleanup services.
In the instance of the whistleblower of the $30-million-dollar reward in late May 2017 the Department of Justice announced one of the nation's largest vendors of electronic health records software will pay a total of $155 million to resolve a False Claims Act lawsuit alleging the company misrepresented the capabilities of its software.
The Department of Justice's alleged the software company was not honest and manipulated their software to pass certification testing without meeting the certification criteria for standardized drug codes. Allegedly the company also modified its software by "hardcoding" only the drug codes required for testing. In other words, rather than programming the capability to retrieve any drug code from a complete database, the company simply typed the 16 codes necessary for certification testing directly into its software.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Because some federal contracts can be so enormous and because federal contractors routinely overbill the federal government or deliver products that do not meet the specifications of the contract----we are urging an employee/whistleblower to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 to discuss the reward potential for this type of information. As opposed to going to your manager at the government contractor and complaining-which could get you fired-please call us first about how the federal whistleblower program works. Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it could be 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 the federal government out of millions of dollars or failing to abide by the terms of contract with the federal government."
