Federal Contractor Agrees to Pay More than $6 million to Settle Overbilling Allegations

By DCAA Staff Writer

 Virginia-based Information Innovators, Inc. (Triple-I) has agreed to pay the United States $6.05 million to resolve allegations that a predecessor company, Creative Computing Solutions, Inc. (CCSi) violated the False Claims Act by knowingly overbilling the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for work performed by CCSi employees who lacked required job qualifications. The settlement resolves allegations that, from October 2007 to April 2014, CCSi used under-qualified personnel who were billed to DHS at higher rates reserved for more qualified employees.

The Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General, US DOJ Civil Division, and US Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland conducted this joint investigation.  

DCAA Auditor Andy Hale and Supervisory Auditor Sandy Porter supported this investigation by calculating damage models for all the unqualified personnel under various scenarios.
