Humanscale Corporation (formerly Softview Computer Products) will pay the United States $9 million to resolve allegations that the company failed to disclose all discount and pricing information to government contract negotiators and failed to comply with price reduction clauses in its contracts.
The company provided furniture and office products to the federal government.
The whistle-blower who brought the suit under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act will receive nearly $1.6 million for his contribution to the case.
