Government procurement fraud affects the General Services Administration, in additional all agencies, and departments, of the government.

When a public agency wishes to get goods or service, it has to go through a procurement process. The strict laws are aimed at preventing fraud, but despite this – fraud still occurs. When fraud allegations are made, an investigation has to occur – which can happen by both state and federal authorities depending on which agency was defrauded.
Defendants accused of procurement fraud could face both criminal prosecution as well as civil lawsuits. This means significant financial penalties. Spodek Law Group, PC, has significant experience providing high quality legal representation to clients throughout the procurement fraud investigation process. We can help you fight civil and criminal charges.
What’s government fraud
Government procurement fraud involves making false/misleading statements, when it comes to bidding, securing, and awarding, government contracts. If you’re bidding on government work, you could be charged with violation of government procurement rules – if you do so in an unethical, or illegal way. Anyone involved in a false claim submitted to the government can face liability, regardless of how large the individual’s role was in the scheme.
Here are examples of government procurement fraud which can lead to both criminal prosecution, and civil penalties against individuals and companies:
Paying/receiving/offering bribes and kickbacks
Non-competitive contract awards, including paying too much for services, or buying too many items
Pushing through unqualified businesses as vendors who are allowed to bid on goods/services
Accepting/paying for non-complaint services or low quality goods
Collusive bidding, in which groups of biggers agree to setup a system where each one can win a contract with a bid.
Abuse of change orders, which means submitting low bids and then increasing profits by submitting change orders
Failure to fulfill contract specifications – using lower quality materials to fulfill orders
Overbilling, or including inflated/duplicative invoices or billing for services which shouldn’t be paid under the terms of the contract
Penalties our procurement fraud lawyers can help with
Penalties can be very serious. Even if you’re not convicted of a crime, you could face a civil lawsuit. In a civil lawsuit, there is a lower burden of proof than a criminal case. Cases can be brought against you by the government, or even private individuals. The False Claims Act, makes it easy for individuals to file a Qui Tam lawsuit, if they can find signs of fraud. Plaintiffs who do such lawsuits are rewarded up to 30% of the money they recover.
Criminal consequences can also jail time, and a permanent criminal record. In addition, you can face multiple criminal charges for acts of fraud in procurement, in addition to mail and wire fraud charges. If you’re under investigation, then you need to respond aggressively. You could face both criminal and civil penalties. Contact Spodek Law Group, PC, and speak to one of our nyc criminal attorneys who can help protect your future.
