KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say that a Tennessee Valley Authority contractor has agreed to a $2.8 million settlement with the government to resolve allegations involving overpayment for the company’s work on a nuclear power plant project.

The office of acting U.S. Attorney Nancy Harr, the federal prosecutor in the Eastern District of Tennessee, said in a press release that TVA contractor Bartlett Holdings, doing business as BHI Energy/Sun Technical Services, was alleged to have violated the False Claims Act. Officials say the company was accused of concealing or avoiding its obligation to refund overpayments it received from TVA for work on the project to complete construction of Watts Bar Nuclear Plant Unit 2.

A marketing manager with the company did not respond to an email and voicemail message seeking comment.
