Question: What is the State Department’s reaction to Justice’s announcement that Armor Group North America and its affiliates have agreed to pay the U.S. $7.5 million to resolve false claims act allegations?

Answer: The Department of State appreciates the work done by the Department of Justice and the Office of the Inspector General in bringing this case to resolution. The Department of State takes any allegation of contractor misconduct seriously and works as part of the inter-agency community to ensure it is adjudicated properly. I would refer you to the U.S. Department of Justice for any further comments
