The Department of Justice settled and obtained judgments in excess of $2.2 billion for false claims against the government last year. And the False Claims Act (FCA) remains an effective enforcement tool about which federal contractors should be wary. Government contractors in the construction industry – both primes and subs – face a higher risk of FCA liability because of the complicated nature of construction contracts and prevailing wage obligations.
