Virginia Contractor To Pay $400K In Texas Military Dispute

SAN ANTONIO — A Virginia defense contractor will pay $400,000 to settle a dispute about access to restricted information at a Texas military installation. The Informatics Applications Group Inc. of Reston, Virginia, did not admit liability in the agreement announced Thursday.

Federal authorities say the matter involves information technology services in 2012 for the U.S. Army Medical Information Technology Center, Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston.

The settlement resolves civil allegations that TIAG submitted false claims to the government in violation of the False Claims Act. Investigators say some company workers, while performing aspects of a military contract, allegedly obtained restricted military data and used the information to submit bids for other contracts.

TIAG did not win any of the other contracts.
