Federal Programs and Procurement Fraud

The MIMF Unit plays a crucial role in prosecuting fraud and corruption related to contracts involving the U.S. Department of Defense and other government agencies. Many of the Unit’s procurement fraud matters involve sophisticated schemes of national impact, including schemes involving defective products and services, bribery of U.S. officials, and fraudulent pricing, among others.

As part of this effort, the MIMF Unit convicted Balfour Beatty Communities LLC (BBC), one of the largest providers of privatized military housing to the U.S. Armed Forces, and two employees of BBC for a multi-year scheme to supply false information about the quality of BBC’s housing maintenance to the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, and U.S. Navy in order to receive fees to which BBC was not entitled.  

The Unit has been a leader in prosecuting fraud in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) programs. Since April 2020, prosecutors have charged more than 185 defendants in at least 120 separate cases across the country in PPP or EIDL fraud schemes and seized or frozen over $76 million. See the press release.

In addition, the MIMF Unit prosecutes fraud that arises in the context of other federal programs, including those overseen by the U.S. Departments of Veterans Affairs, Health and Human Services, Agriculture, Education, and Transportation.

As part of these efforts, the MIMF Unit led an enforcement action that resulted in the conviction of at least eight defendants in three separate cases that collectively involved over $100 million of fraud loss to the Department of Veterans Affairs through its Post-9/11 GI Bill program, a benefit program that pays tuition, housing, and other costs for eligible veterans seeking post-secondary education and training.
