The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services agreed to pay roughly $2.5 million to resolve allegations it violated the False Claims Act in its administration of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), previously known as the Food Stamp Program.  According to the government, ADHSS contracted with Julie Osnes Consulting LLC to provide advice and recommendations designed to lower its SNAP quality control error rate and the company’s recommendations, as implemented by ADHSS, injected bias into ADHSS’s quality control process and resulted in ADHSS submitting inaccurate quality control data and information to USDA and receiving performance bonuses that it should not have received. DOJ
