Background check company US Investigations Services Inc. and its parent company Altegrity agreed to settle charges that USIS violated the False Claims Act by failing to provide proper background checks as required under its contract with the Office of Personnel Management. They agreed to forgo $30 million in payments they claim OPM owed them. The allegations leading to the settlement were first raised in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by former USIS executive Blake Percival under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act. He will receive a yet-to-be-determined whistleblower award. Whistleblower Insider
