Vermont-based contractor J.A. McDonald, Inc., and its owner and president Eric Boyden, agreed to pay $270,000 to resolve allegations that JAM violated the False Claims Act by causing the State of Vermont to present false claims for payment to the United States in connection with the federally-funded construction of a two-span bridge on Vermont Route 116 in Bristol, Vermont.  Specifically, the settlement resolves allegations that JAM employees intentionally altered critical bridge components such that the bridge no longer conformed to specified safety standards, and that JAM employees took affirmative steps to conceal the alterations from the Vermont Agency of Transportation.
