Jury finds SAIC violated False Claims Act

A federal jury found Science Applications International Corp. violated the False Claims Act while performing work for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and ordered the company to pay $6 million in damages, according to a story on the Federal Times Web site.

The violations occurred in the 1990s when NRC hired SAIC to help it develop a rule that would govern whether radioactive materials from nuclear facilities could be released or recycled. The jury ruled the company concealed relationships with private firms that would benefit from the rule and made 77 false statements and claims to obtain payment on two NRC contracts in the 1990s.
