DOJ Indicts South Korean Contractor for Defrauding U.S. Military Bases

Three individuals implemented bid-rigging to raise prices for operational work.

The U.S. District Court of West Texas indicted a Korean national for conspiracy to defraud U.S. military bases in South Korea. In November 2018, the CEO of a South Korean subcontract company began rigging bids and fixing prices on maintenance and operations work at U.S. military bases. She perpetuated this practice for four years, defrauding the Defense Department of millions of dollars.

“These alleged crimes targeted United States military installations overseas, where we make significant investments to protect our strategic interests,” said Director Daniel Glad of the Justice Department’s Procurement Collusion Strike Force. “The Antitrust Division and our PCSF partners around the globe will continue to investigate and pursue charges for illegal conduct that targets U.S. military spending, wherever it occurs.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Justice Department attorneys and investigators as they prosecute federal crimes.
  • For judges of the federal court system to be discerning as they hear and rule on cases brought by the DOJ.
