This type of fraud, waste, or abuse can arise from any kind of contract with the federal government.
Common examples include misrepresentations contractors tell in order to get picked for the contract (called fraud in the inducement), violations of federal regulations, violations of contract terms, failure to provide what has been contracted for, or false certifications that certain conditions have been met, among many other possibilities.
Federal contracts require exact compliance – no substitutions are allowed without prior permission from the right government official.
The False Claims Act reaches to cover all manners of fraudulent and wasteful treatment of Government money, including:
- Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Fraud
- Small Business Administration Fraud
- Postal Fraud
- Charity Fraud
- Off-label Pharmaceutical Marketing
- Nursing Home Fraud
- Hospice Care Fraud
- Hospital Fraud
- Home Health Fraud
