En Pointe Gov. Inc. (now known as Modern Gov IT Inc.), En Pointe Technologies Inc. (now known as Dinco Inc.), En Pointe Technologies Sales Inc. (now known as Collab9 Inc.), Dominguez East Holdings LLC and Din Global Corp. agreed to pay roughly $5.8 million to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by falsely certifying that En Pointe Gov. was a small business so it could obtain contracts set aside for small businesses and by underreporting sales under a General Services Administration (GSA) contract to avoid the payment of fees. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by Minburn Technology Group, , a Virginia company that sells information technology products and services, and Anthony Colangelo, Minburn’s managing member. Minburn and Colangelo will receive a whistleblower award of approximately $1.4 million. DOJ
