Fraudulent Reimbursement

“Computer Sciences Corporation (“CSC”)… agreed to settle civil allegations and reimburse the $1,275,000.00 to settle allegations related to fraudulent conduct by a former CSC employee. Computer Sciences Corporation, headquartered in El Segundo, California (suburb of Los Angeles) had a former employee based in its Huntsville office, and developed a scheme between 1994-2003 whereby CSC made payments to fictitious companies and then requested reimbursement for these payments under a contract with the National Space and Aeronautics Administration (“NASA”). The employee kept the amount of these transactions small in order to avoid detection by CSC and government auditors. However, over a period of approximately nine years NASA reimbursed CSC over $1 million for the fraudulent payments. Upon learning of the employee’s fraudulent scheme, CSC quickly disclosed all the relevant facts to the and fully cooperated with the subsequent investigation. The investigation revealed that while CSC had no knowledge of the fraud, CSC and its former employee both benefited from the fraud."
