Netcracker Technology to Pay $11.4 Million and Computer Sciences Corporation to Pay $1.35 Million to Settle False Claims Charge

NetCracker Technology Corp. will pay $11.4 million and Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC) will pay $1.35 million to resolve allegations under the False Claims Act that they used individuals without security clearances on a Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) contract.


NetCracker is a telecom software and services company headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, and CSC is an information technology services company with its headquarters in Falls Church, Virginia.

The civil settlement resolves a lawsuit filed under the whistleblower provision of the False Claims Act, which permits private parties to file suit on behalf of the United States for false claims and obtain a portion of the government’s recovery.


The civil lawsuit was filed in    the District of Columbia by John Kingsley, a former NetCracker employee.

Kingsley will receive $2,358,750 as his share of the recovery in this case.

NetCracker and CSC implemented software used to help manage the telecommunications network used by the U.S. Department of Defense.

The work was done pursuant to a contract with DISA, under which CSC was the prime contractor and NetCracker was a CSC subcontractor.

From 2008 through 2013, NetCracker allegedly used employees without security clearances to perform work when it knew the contract required those individuals to have security clearances, resulting in CSC recklessly submitting false claims for payment to DISA.
