Florida Technical College, Inc. agreed to pay $600,000 to settle claims it violated the False Claims Act through the college’s Cutler Bay Campus falsely certifying compliance with federal student aid programs’ eligibility requirements and submitting claims for 27 ineligible students. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by Laurie Astacio, a former administrative assistant in the Cutler Bay admissions office. She will receive a whistleblower award from the proceeds of the government’s recovery. DOJ (SDFL)
