CACI Technologies has agreed to pay the U.S. government $1.5 million to settle an allegation that it breached a contract with the National Security Agency, the Justice Department announced earlier this month.
CACI was alleged to have billed and accepted payment from NSA for work performed by CACI employees who did not meet required qualifications, according to the Justice Department.
"The United States alleged that between January 1, 2010 and June 30, 2014, certain CACI employees who provided services under the Delivery Orders issued under the Contract did not meet all the qualifications described in the labor categories corresponding to the rates billed to and paid by the NSA for those CACI employees," DOJ said. "According to the civil settlement agreement, the settlement resolves these allegations."
CACI has already paid NSA nearly $740,000 and is set to pay about $793,000 more within 30 days, the Justice Department added.
Under the settlement, CACI does not admit liability and the claim resolved by the settlement remains an allegation. The company declined to comment.
