Auditors Assist US District Attorney

By DCAA Staff Writer

PAE Applied Technologies, LLC, has agreed to pay $4,200,000 to settle civil claims stemming from allegations that it submitted false claims to the United States Air Force. It was alleged that PAE knowingly submitted false claims to the Air Force for employee wages and submitted false claims for wage rates above the applicable wage caps. Investigative Support Auditor Jon Barrett and Supervisory Auditor Vernon Moore supported the investigation by analyzing formulas to find the cause of the fraudulent wage overages, calculated wage overages across 700 employees, and created timelines to show how the fraudulent formulas were corrected and then changed back to fraudulent before contract negotiations.
