Former Federal Contract Employee Sentenced For Falsifying Timesheets at Two Agencies

Double-Billing Scam Cost Government Over $70,000

            WASHINGTON – Daniel J. Glauber, who worked as a federal contract employee, was sentenced today to pay more than $70,000 in restitution and perform 360 hours of community service for falsifying timesheets while working at two separate federal agencies.

 

            The sentencing was announced by U.S. Attorney Channing D. Phillips, Norbert E. Vint, Acting Inspector General for the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), and Russell Decker, Acting Inspector General of the National Security Agency (NSA).

 

            Glauber, 44, who now resides in Fort Worth, Texas, pled guilty in November 2016, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, to a charge of making false statements. The Honorable Richard J. Leon sentenced Glauber to five years of probation. During that time, he will be placed on GPS monitoring for 90 days, must perform the community service, and must pay a total of $70,646 in restitution.

 

            According to the government’s evidence, Glauber was hired in April 2012, under contract, as a systems administrator at OPM. He was required to perform his duties on-site and work a standard 40-hour work week. Additionally, and unbeknownst to OPM, in May of 2012, he was hired as a subcontractor to work at NSA on computer systems. Here, too, his duties called for him to work a standard 40-hour work week and on-site.

 

            From May through August of 2012, Glauber worked at both OPM and NSA, but neither agency was aware that he was working for the other. OPM’s Office of the Inspector General reviewed building access reports and confirmed that Glauber billed 323.75 hours for the time period ranging from May through August 2012 in which he was not actually present at his work site. He was paid $43,706 for these hours, and subsequently was terminated by OPM. However, it was only after his termination that OPM learned of the other employment at NSA.

 

            NSA investigators later reviewed building records and uncovered a discrepancy of 269.5 hours in which Glauber had submitted timesheets for hours in which he did not work on-site. He was paid $26,940 for these hours.

 

            In announcing the sentence, U.S. Attorney Phillips, Acting Inspector General Vint, and Acting Inspector General Decker commended the work of Special Agent Christopher Sulhoff, OPM, Office of the Inspector General, and the investigators who worked on the case from the National Security Agency, Office of the Inspector General. They also acknowledged the efforts of those who worked on the case from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, including Paralegal Specialists Kaitlyn Krueger, Christopher Toms, and Jessica Mundi, and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Teresa A. Howie and Assistant U.S. Attorney Adrienne C. Dedjinou, who prosecuted the case.
