Xavier University of Louisiana will pay $12 million to resolve allegations that it caused the submission of false claims for federal funds for the repair of facilities damaged by Hurricane Katrina.  Repair cost estimates for the university were submitted by AECOM, which contracted with FEMA to conduct site evaluations and prepare and evaluate repair estimates.  The action was initiated by the filing of a whistleblower complaint by AECOM employee Robert Romero, who will receive a whistleblower award of approximately $2.3 million. The government has intervened in claims against AECOM, and litigation in that matter is continuing.  DOJ See subsequent settlement
