SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Federal authorities say Agilent Technologies, Inc. has agreed to pay the government almost $850,000 to resolve bid-rigging allegations.

Officials say the company last year voluntarily told authorities the sales of some electronic measurement instruments and systems to the government were the result of bid rigging.

U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag said Wednesday the Santa Clara-based scientific instrument maker has agreed to pay the government $849,678 to resolve allegations that it submitted false claims to the United States.

Haag says Agilent provided information that showed it agreed with its distributors and resellers on whether to bid and what prices to bid to meet the government’s rules.

She says the settlement agreement resolves the government’s investigation.
