  • Federal and state governments spend billions of dollars annually on a wide variety of construction projects. These projects have long been a target for fraud and abuse. Some of the most common types of fraud that have been investigated include bidrigging, falsification of minority contractor status, bribes, illegal kickbacks, overcharging for materials, overcharging for labor hours, sub-standard materials, substandard workmanship, failure to follow contract specifications, and falsification of progress reports and documents.
