HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Scientic Inc. has admitted defrauding the Department of Defense (DoD) and NASA by making false statements in order to get research contracts.
Scientic pleaded guilty in the case. Last week, a federal judge ordered the company to repay the full contracts from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and NASA.
The contracts totaled $250,000, all of which must be paid back along with a $30,000 fine. Judge Abdul Kallon also placed the company on three years’ probation.
