DoD Seeks Changes to the Program Fraud Civil Remedies Act

Apr.26.2016

On April 12, 2016, DoD sent its legislative proposal package to Congress and requested (in section 805) changes to the Program Fraud Civil Remedies Act to create, in DoD’s view, a more viable administrative remedy for fraud and false claims totaling less than $500,000. In addition to increasing the ceiling on false claims allegations that can be brought under the PFCRA, DoD seeks to place the decision of whether adequate evidence of liability exists in the hands of suspending and debarring officials, raising for contractors serious concerns, some of which are summarized in the associated blog post.
