PAE Government Services Inc. and RM Asia (HK) Limited agreed to pay $1.45 million to resolve allegations they engaged in a bid-rigging scheme that resulted in false claims for payment under a US Army contract for services in Afghanistan. In 2007, the Army awarded PAE a contract to provide vehicle maintenance capabilities and training services for the Afghanistan National Army at multiple sites across Afghanistan. PAE partnered with RM Asia to supply and warehouse vehicle parts. According to the government, former managers of PAE and RM Asia funneled subcontracts paid for by the government to companies owned by the former managers and their relatives by using confidential bid information to ensure that their companies would beat out other, honest competitors.
