Virginia-based defense contractor Triple Canopy, Inc. agreed to pay $2.6 million to settle charges it violated the False Claims Act by submitting false claims for payment to the Department of Defense for unqualified security guards stationed in Iraq.  Specifically, the government alleged that Triple Canopy knowingly billed the government for security guards who could not pass contractually required firearms proficiency tests and that Triple Canopy concealed the guards’ inability to satisfy the firearms testing requirements by creating false test scorecards that Triple Canopy was required to maintain for government review.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by a former Triple Canopy employee.  The whistleblower will receive an award of roughly $500,000 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (EDVA)
