Nonprofit Organization and Management Company Settle Grant Fraud Allegations Case

The National Association of State Chief Information Officers, Inc. and American Management Resources, Inc. have agreed to pay the United States $528,575.82 to resolve allegations that they have violated the False Claims Act by making false and misleading statements in connection with obtaining grants from the Department of Justice’s National Justice Information Sharing Initiative. This settlement resolves allegations that NASCIO failed to disclose conflicts of interest related to its contract with AMR that were required to be disclosed under the grant program’s rules. The United States contends that failure to disclose this information resulting in NASCIO being awarded grant funding they would not have otherwise received. The case was a result of an investigation by the Department of Justice Chicago field Office and the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Kentucky.
