LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION
Four Ohio state employees alleged false billing practices by CGI-AMS Inc., a computer consulting firm carried out in 1999. The whistleblowers said that AMS billed top dollar for work performed by unqualified employees in a $95 million contract with former Ohio Department of Human Services. In 1997, AMS was hired to install a computer system that would help county caseworkers statewide spend less time on data-entry tasks and more time with people in need of benefits. A lawsuit was filed in 2002. The agency, now called the Department of Job and Family Services, used federal money to pay for the system. CGI acquired American Management Systems (AMS) in 2004. CGI-AMS and its affiliated companies have about 25,000 employees in 17 countries. AMS has agreed to pay $800,000 to the U.S. government, $232,000 to the four plaintiffs and $500,000 to their lawyers.
