The settlement reportedly resolves claims that Monaco Enterprises falsely billed the government for work it never provided, hid costs from contracting officers and inflated others without requiring the company to admit wrongdoing.
The whistleblowers, former employees of Monaco Enterprises, Jason Voss, Drake Osborn and Lisa Osborn, and Maximillian Salazar III brought the suits forward alleging that for years Monaco Enterprises engaged in numerous practices designed to defraud the federal government involving Monaco’s fire safety services at military bases throughout the country.
In October 2015, allegedly the government partially intervened claiming that Monaco Enterprises routinely overcharged government agencies by 35 % or more for products Monaco Enterprises falsely claimed to have manufactured.
The whistleblowers who originally filed the case will receive between 15-25 % of the total settlement.
Based in Spokane, Washington, Monaco Enterprises Inc manufactures and installs fire and security alarm systems for industrial and the United States government facilities in the United States and internationally.
