Product Substitution

The government frequently specifies that its defense contractors build products using a certain grade or quality of parts. There often is a further requirement that the parts be purchased from American companies. Sometimes companies are tempted to provide substitute (and often inferior) parts that they can get more cheaply from an unauthorized source. If they do this without getting permission from the government contracting officer, it can form the basis for a False Claims case.
