Wisconsin-based Novum Structures LLC agreed to enter a guilty plea and pay $3 million to resolve its criminal and civil liability arising from its improper use of foreign materials in federally funded construction projects which had “Buy America” requirements. Novum specializes in the design and construction of glass space frames often used in roofs and atrium enclosures. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by Brenda King under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act. She will receive a whistleblower award of approximately $400,000 from the government’s recovery. DOJ
