July 13, 2007 Akal Security Inc.
Akal Security Inc., one of the nations largest contract security providers in the country, will pay the United States $18 Million to resolve allegations that it violated terms of its contract to provide trained civilian guards at eight U.S. Army Bases.
In September 2003, the U.S. Army awarded a series of contracts for security guards to the company for bases in Kansas, Washington, Texas, Georgia, North Carolina and Alabama.
In October 2004, three company employees filed a qui tam action against the company on behalf of the United States in a U.S. District Court.
As part of the settlement, the three employees are expected to receive up to $4.5 Million for having filed the case.
