Remember When PwC Settled the Federal Government's False Claims Suits?

Remember When PwC Settled the Federal Government's False Claims Suits?

In the early 2000s, the federal government joined a whistleblower lawsuit filed by a former PwC partner, Neal Roberts, which alleged that PwC made false claims regarding travel reimbursements related to contracts it had with the US government. PwC paid millions to settle the lawsuit in 2005, though it denied wrongdoing.  Two years later, PwC settled another false claims lawsuit, again denying wrongdoing.

Private companies and public agencies considering PwC should evaluate not just PwC’s recent conduct nor view past incidents in isolation, but instead view its history holistically. The previous report in our series "Public Watchdog or Fox in the Hen House?" examined a settlement from 2014. This second report in our series considers the federal government’s false claims lawsuits against PwC.  While PwC denied the government's allegations, it paid over $40 million to resolve them.
