VMware Inc. and Carahsoft Technology Corporation agreed to pay $75.5 million to settle charges they violated the False Claims Act by misrepresenting their commercial pricing practices and overcharging the government on VMware software products and related services. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by Dane Smith, a former vice president of the Americas at VMware Inc., under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act. He will receive a yet-to-be-determined whistleblower award from a portion of the government’s recovery. Whistleblower Insider
