WASHINGTON, March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Native American Contractors Association ("NACA") applauds the excellent work of federal prosecutors in the matter involving a rogue employee, working for a subsidiary of an Alaska Native entity, in a federal contracting fraud scheme. As a result of a federal investigation, the individual, Harold Babb, indicted last October 2011 for being involved in a bribery and kickback scheme, intends to plead guilty later this month. 


NACA's Executive Director, Kevin Allis, stated "We and our members have no tolerance for any actions that violate the law, and this individual will receive, and deserves, the forthcoming punishment that no doubt will be consistent with the punishments issued over the past decade to the dozens of employees who engaged in conduct designed to misappropriate hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars, while working for some of the largest federal contractors in the country.  NACA and its members are committed to adhering to high ethical standards when providing valuable and quality services to the federal government."
