CSC to settle U.S. payment claims

May 14, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Computer Sciences Corp., the manager of networks for NASA and the Navy, agreed to pay $1.4 million to settle U.S. allegations that it solicited improper payments in connection with government contracts.

The El Segundo-based company received the kickbacks from other companies with which it had business relationships, the Justice Department alleged. The civil case was first brought by whistle-blowers who will receive a share of the settlement, the government said.

Computer Sciences spokesman Mike Dickerson said, "We can confirm that we have settled this matter, but we emphatically deny that CSC engaged in any false claims or other wrongdoing in association with this case."
