False Claims Act (FCA) 2012 Year in Review: Government Contractors

April 24, 2013

Our second False Claims Act (FCA) 2012 Year in Review webinar, focusing on FCA issues for government contractors.

In 2012, the U.S. government collected $4.9 billion in FCA settlements, and government contract-related claims remain a core priority of government investigators and whistleblower plaintiffs. Current federal funding and budget uncertainties are contributing to an unstable environment that is likely to result in increased audits, investigations, and FCA actions against government contractors.

Topics discussed: 

  • General practice and procedures of FCA/qui tam litigation
  • Oversight by federal audit and investigatory authorities
  • "False Claims-ification" of routine billing and invoicing disputes
  • Suspensions and debarments
  • Recent FCA/qui tam prosecutions and recoveries
  • Whistleblower trends
  • Defense strategies to effectively assess and challenge FCA investigations and litigation proceedings
  • Hot button legal issues in FCA/qui tam litigation
