Alaskan company, subsidiary pay $2 million to US in bribery scheme involving Fort Bliss contracts

An Alaskan company and its employees paid illegal kickbacks and bribes to a U.S. Army contractor in order to get government contracts for construction work at Fort Bliss, officials said.

The company, Kikiktagruk Inupiat Corp., and its subsidiary, KIC Development LLC, on April 13 agreed to pay more than $2 million as part of a settlement in a civil lawsuit filed by the U.S. government.

The fraud involved a contract for construction work at Fort Bliss as part of a “$3 billion effort to transform” the post, according to a complaint filed in federal court.

The scheme, which happened between 2008 to 2009, was uncovered after a company employee, Susann Campbell, came forward in January 2010 and reported the suspected crimes to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Texas, according to court documents and officials with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
