Procurement Fraud

A couple of months ago, procurement fraud was announced as a new DOJ priority, and the fruits of targeting this area are starting to roll in. According to a DOJ press release from the Central District of Illinois, "The former Director of Operations in Kuwait and Iraq for Tamimi Global Company, a Saudi Arabian company, Mohammad Shabbir Khan, was sentenced today to a term of 51 months in prison for having paid kickbacks to a Kellogg, Brown & Root Services, Inc. (KBR) employee to secure two military dining subcontracts valued at $21.8 million."  The court also sentenced another individual to a term of 12 months and one day in prison for his role in the kickback scheme with Tamimi."
