Government contractor accused of inflating labor estimates

SAIC, a research and engineering firm, is the subject of an Air Force “alert,” arising from allegations in a False Claims Act suit against the company.

A qui tam whistleblower suit brought by a former employee alleges that SAIC inflated its labor estimates to compensate for internal inefficiencies, inoperable equipment and anticipated schedule delays. In response, the Air Force is requiring contracting officials to demand backup data revealing the details of how SAIC compensates for the business risks of performing fixed-price contracts.

U.S. Newswire reported on these developments on February 1, 2005.
