The United States government enters into more contracts to purchase goods than any other entity in the world. Whether the contract is for military aircraft or emergency beds for hurricane survivors, the federal government spends more than $300 billion per year in procuring goods.
Increasingly, contract disputes with the federal government are resulting in criminal charges, specifically as they relate to procurement fraud allegations levied against contractors and employees who work for government contractors.
