Contractors Overload Agencies By Reporting Smallest Frauds
Apr.20.2012 — Government Contracts Law360
Washington, D.C.-based chair of Crowell & Moring's Government Contracts Group, Angela B. Styles, speaks to Government Contracts Law360 about government contractors' caution in disclosing overpayments or potential fraud, as mandated by a 2008 rule.
According to Styles, "Contractors assumed when the rule came out that the government was going to overreact to disclosures, and generally it has not. As a general proposition, the disclosures have been handled very appropriately by the government."
