Welcome to the False Claims Act – Whistleblowers Blog. The Federal and State Governments spend trillions of dollars each year to fund a wide variety of programs and to purchase vast amounts of goods and services. Some of the larger government programs include: Medicare, Medicaid, Department of Defense-Military Spending, the Troubled Assets Relief Program (“TARP”), Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”) Spending, Department of Education Grants; Department of Energy Grants and Mining and Gas Royalties; and General Services Administration (“GSA”) Spending.
Each of these government programs is a frequent target for fraudulent schemes and false claims. The Government does not have the resources necessary to protect every dollar of taxpayer spending. The Government has come to rely upon Whistleblowers, often referred to as “Qui Tam Relators,” to blow-the-whistle on businesses and individuals who attempt to defraud the Government.
