Workrite Ergonomics LLC and its parent company, Knape & Vogt Manufacturing Co., have agreed to pay $7.1 million to resolve a qui tam suit brought by a former sales manager, Michael Franchek, which alleged that Workrite overcharged the federal government for office furniture purchased under General Services Administration (GSA) contracts.  Workrite allegedly failed to provide GSA, and state agencies that relied on GSA’s pricing, with accurate information during contract negotiations, and failed to extend lower prices to government customers as required by contract provisions.  As part of the settlement, Franchek will receive a relator’s share of $1.27 million.  DOJ; USAO NDCA; CA
