Deloitte Consulting to Pay $11 Million to Settle False Claims Act Case

Deloitte Consulting will pay $11.38 million to resolve allegations under the False Claims Act that it submitted false claims under a General Services Administration (GSA) contract.


Deloitte is a nationwide consulting company headquartered in New York City.

Deloitte was represented by Jonathan Aronie of Sheppard Mullin in Washington, D.C.

“Contractors are expected to deal fairly with federal agencies when receiving taxpayer funds,” Benjamin C. Mizer, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Division.  “As this settlement demonstrates, we will take action against those who knowingly fail to live up to the terms of their government contracts.”

In 2000, GSA awarded Deloitte a contract for the provision of information technology services.

The contract required Deloitte to reduce the prices it charged the government if it offered lower prices to specific commercial customers during the course of the contract.

The settlement resolves allegations that between 2006 and 2012, Deloitte failed to comply with the price reductions clause in its contract, resulting in government customers paying more for Deloitte’s services than comparable commercial customers.
