Personal Stuff/Random News
The DoJ's jumping in on a lawsuit claiming that some major hardware vendors were involved in kickbacks for government contracts.

The lawsuits, originally filed by Accenture employee Norman Rille and another whistleblower, accuse the companies of creating alliance relationships with dozens of other vendors, giving each other discounts or rebates on products or work for government contracts. The companies did not pass the rebates on to their government clients, according to a DOJ court filing.

"Millions of dollars of kickbacks were sought, received, offered and paid" among the three companies and other technology partners, the DOJ said in a court filing made public Thursday. Any rebates vendors receive as part of a U.S. government contract belong to the government, the DOJ said.
