Presented by Hodgson Russ, the Whistleblower Blog is written by a team of lawyers experienced in successfully guiding both whistleblowers and companies accused by whistleblowers of wrongdoing through the False Claims Act process.

Oracle Whistleblower Receives $40 Million in False Claim Act

The settlement resolves allegations that, in contract negotiations and over the course of the contract’s administration, Oracle “knowingly failed to meet its contractual obligations to provide GSA with current, accurate, and complete information about its commercial sales practices, including discounts offered to other customers, and that Oracle knowingly made false statements to GSA about its sales practices and discounts.”

The settlement further resolves allegations that Oracle “knowingly failed to comply with the price reduction clause of its GSA contract by not disclosing to GSA discounts Oracle gave to its commercial customers when they were higher than the discounts that Oracle had disclosed to GSA, and by failing to pass those discounts on to government customers.”

As a result, the government alleged that it accepted lower discounts and ultimately paid more than it should have for Oracle products. The suit originated as a whistleblower suit filed in federal court in Virginia. According to the Justice Department, the former Oracle employee who blew the whistle will recover $40 million as his share in the qui tam suit.
