A unit of Lockheed Martin Corporation, Tactical Systems Division, has agreed to pay over $2 Million Dollars to settle claims asserted in a qui tam action filed by Barbara Grosens, a private relator. The allegations of the case were that the Tactical Systems Division improperly charged the Strategic Systems Program of the Navy for bid and proposal costs on a series of defense contracts for services and materials for the Trident Missile Program during the period from 1988 through 1996.
As part of the settlement, Ms. Grosens is to receive over $280,000 for having filed the qui tam case.
