DRS Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

DRS Technologies Pays $14 Million to Settle Allegations

DRS Technologies Inc. will fork over $13.7 million to settle allegations it overbilled the government for work performed by employees who lacked required job qualifications. The claims, which resulted from an internal government investigation, actually pertain to DRS C3 & Aviation Co. The DRS subsidiary in Gaithersburg was providing services to the Army's Communication and Electronics Command. According to the Justice Department, which announced the settlement, DRS from Jan. 1, 2003, to Dec. 31, 2012, allegedly billed CECOM for work performed by individuals whose job qualifications, and pay grades, did not meet all the requirements detailed in labor categories included in its contracts, 'thereby falsely increasing the amount of money DRS claimed and CECOM paid.' The government claimed that DRS, which is owned by Italian conglomerate Finmeccanica SpA., also overcharged the Coast Guard's Aviation Logistics Center from Dec. 19, 2009, to Dec. 18, 2011, 'thereby inflating the cost of the services provided. The alleged CECOM labor mischarging occurred on the Rapid Response, or R2 contract, used to purchase a variety of goods and services needed to support U.S. forces in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere on a quick turnaround basis. The settlement also resolves labor mischarging on a similar U.S. Coast Guard contract. DRS did not respond to a request for comment on the settlement, which it's worth noting is not an admission of guilt.
