Former Intelligent Decisions CEO sentenced to probation

Former CEO of Intelligent Decisions Harry Martin has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading guilty to charges he paid a former contracting official for federal contracts, FedBiz Daily reports.

Martin was also ordered to pay a $250,000 fine and a special assessment of $100 for his role in a scheme that spent more than $10,000 on dinners and golf outings for In Seom Lim, a former contracting official for the Army.

Martin was the 20th individual to plead guilty in the investigation as of November.

I think your comments are right on target, but you and Nick give too much credit to the SBA. They probably don’t know Harry Martin is the owner of ID and don’t care. This story never got front page attention in the Washington Post and won’t help anyone at SBA further their career! Harry is a low key, out of sight, business owner so the SBA probably has no idea Harry is even the owner of ID and that ID continues to do business with the Feds and Harry continues to benefit from ID’s success despite being suspended in the System for Award Management (SAM). The fact is without the sensational headlines the SBA is not likely to do anything. Makes you wonder why driving a nice car, living in a nice house and watching the UFC can hurt your business more than bribing government officials!

Knowing the details of this case and the fact that Intelligent Decisions is 100% owned by Harry Martin I am floored to hear that they can continue doing business with the feds as though Harry Martin and his people did nothing wrong? They have recently won the Air Force NETCENTS Contract and US Courts Judiciary Multiple Award Services (JMAS IV) contract despite the fact that their owner and CEO at the time was suspended and was about to plead guilty to charges he paid a contracting officer for contracts! Sounds like the government is saying if you bribe contracting officers and get caught we will let you plead guilty to a felony, pay a fine, and ask you to step down as CEO, but the company you own can continue to do business with the federal government and win contract? This is incredible when you consider what they did and how they did it. Where is the SBA in all of this? This goes back to your article “Is SBA MIA on contractor fraud?” They beat up others because a report in the Post says they’re making too much money, and the car they drive and house they live in is too nice and here is someone who violates the law and bribes contracting officers and the SBA allows this company to continue business doing business like nothing happened. The SBA is not just MIA they are completely out to lunch!
