Fort Drum Contractor Pays $683,987 to Resolve False Claims Act Exposure

Ft Drum Corner

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (18 NEWS) – Alutiiq Diversified Services, LLC (“Alutiiq”) paid $683,987 to resolve claims that it improperly billed the United States Army for the construction of a shoot house located at Fort Drum.

Alutiiq also agreed to remediate the shoot house at no cost to the government, announced United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith.

 Alutiiq had an agreement with the Army to construct a shoot house on Fort Drum for use as a live-fire, close-quarters combat training facility. 

 The investigation revealed that the subcontractor responsible for making the SACON did not follow the SACON specifications, delivering hundreds of SACON blocks that were outside the density parameters.

The investigation and settlement were the result of a coordinated effort among the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of New York, the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, and the United States Army Criminal Investigation Command.
