The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced recently that Pennsylvania State University has agreed to pay the United States $151,000 to resolve potential liability under the False Claims Act.

According to U.S. Attorney David J. Freed, the investigation arose from alleged mischarges to various grants and contracts from the National Science Foundation, the Department of the Navy, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the Air Force.
