Contractor Settles Airport Screener Dispute
Over at our brother blog, Government Inc., The Post's Robert O'Harrow reports that a company at the center of a homeland security contracting debacle several years ago has agreed to pay $5.6 million to resolve allegations that it submitted false claims while helping hire airport security screeners.
O'Harrow and Scott Higham first wrote in 2005 about abuses in the government's contract with NCS Pearson Inc., which included charging taxpayers $1,180 for 20 gallons of Starbucks Coffee at the Santa Clara Marriott in California.
