The Texas A&M Research Foundation (TAMRF) has agreed to pay $750,00 to settle allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by charging various federal agencies for grant-related expenses not qualified to be paid under the rules of the grants. According to a whistleblower lawsuit filed by an undisclosed number of current employees, TAMRF’s improper charges ranged from overstating salaries, to inflating expenses, to expenses for completely unrelated subjects and unapproved persons. Some of the agencies affected include the Department of Education (ED), Department of Energy (DOE), NASA, National Science Foundation (NSF), and Department of Transportation (DOT). USAO SDTX
