ASBCA: U.S. May Seek $8B Afghanistan Fraud Recovery

June 10, 2016, Federal Contracts Report

Jason Workmaster is quoted in a Federal Contracts Report article regarding a decision by the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals ruling that an $8 billion claim against an Afghanistan food supplier alleging that fraudulent conduct made its multiyear contract void from the outset may be pursued by the U.S. government. According to Workmaster, the decision “clearly sends the signal that, while there remain limits and until the Federal Circuit says otherwise, the board is open for business to consider government assertions of contractor fraud.” He adds that the decision shows “that contractors need to be on their toes when resolving civil False Claims Act and criminal allegations, so that they are ensuring they also are taking care of any contractual liability to the greatest extent possible.”
