If you have evidence of an individual or organization that is bilking taxpayers through government contract fraud, you may be able to earn a reward for blowing the whistle on graft and corruption. According to the qui tam provisions of the federal False Claims Act, whistleblowers who provide information that leads to a recovery of government money receive a portion of the funds.
Government contract fraud includes procurement fraud — providing goods or services of an inferior quality — as well as over-billing, billing for services not provided, taking kickbacks, violating competitive bidding regulations and violating the terms of the contract.
Those who supply goods and services to the government must comply with the Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA) and avoid ethical violations, such as hiring former government employees or paying kickbacks or bribes to government officials.
