A whistleblower will receive $1.28 million for filing a False Claims Act lawsuit against Vector Planning and Services Inc. (VPSI), an information technology company and consulting firm based in Virginia.

The whistleblower lawsuit alleged that VPSI inflated its indirect cost billings to the government by improperly including direct costs for which it had already been paid, and also submitted claims for other costs that were never incurred.

The whistleblower’s reward resulted from a settlement in which $6.5 million was recovered on behalf of U.S. taxpayers.
