DCAA Auditors Help with Investigation Resulting in $9 Million Settlement

By DCAA Staff Writer

The DCAA Operations Investigative Support Division (OIS) helped investigate a case with Federal False Claims Act violations that resulted in a $9 million settlement. 

The General Electric (GE) Aerospace’s Lynn, Mass. manufacturing plant (GEA Lynn) violated the False Claims Act by selling parts to the United States Army and the United States Navy that were not properly inspected or non-conforming to the contract requirements. GE Aerospace admitted that GEA Lynn did not conduct required parts inspections and sold engines containing parts that did not meet required specifications to U.S. military customers from July 24, 2012, to Dec. 31, 2019. 

OIS supported the investigation by participating in meetings and discussions, searching the DCAA audit archives for relevant audit history, and creating damage models.
