FRAUD, WASTE AND ABUSE
The 2011 SBIR/STTR Reauthorization and the 2014 SBIR Policy Directive from the Small Business Administration (SBA) provide an outline for minimizing the risk of Fraud, Waste and Abuse (FWA) in the SBIR and STTR programs.
Knowingly and willfully making any false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements or representations may be a felony under the Federal Criminal False Statement Act (18 U.S.C. Sec 1001), punishable by a fine of up to $10,000, up to five years in prison, or both.
The Department of Defense, Office of Inspector General Hotline ("Defense Hotline") is an important avenue for reporting fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement within the Department of Defense. The Office of Inspector General operates this hotline to receive and investigate complaints or information from contractor employees, DoD civilians, military service members and public citizens.
Individuals who wish to report fraud, waste or abuse may contact the Defense Hotline at (800) 424-9098 between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Eastern Time or visit the DoD IG Hotline to submit a complaint.
Mailed correspondence should be addressed to the Defense Hotline, The Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-1900, or e-mail addressed to email@example.com
