A federal court has found United Technologies Corp. liable for more than $473 million in damages and penalties arising out of a contract to provide the Air Force with engines for F-15 and F-16 fighter aircraft from 1985 to 1990, the Justice Department said Thursday.
"We depend on companies like KBR and its subcontractors to provide valuable services to our military," said Stuart Delery, assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's Civil Division, in a statement. "We will ensure that contractors do not engage in corrupt practices at the expense of our troops abroad, while profiting at the expense of taxpayers at home."
"It is vital that companies who do business with the government provide full and accurate information, and if they do not, they will pay the consequences," said Acting Assistant Attorney General Stuart Delery, who heads the Justice Department's Civil Division.
