Oracle to Pay Nearly 200 Million to Settle False Claims Lawsuit

Oracle has agreed to cut a check for $199.5 million plus interest to the U.S. General Services Administration for "failing to meet contractual obligations," the U.S. Justice Department announced. For the GSA, this will be the largest False Claims Act settlement it has ever received to date, a record Oracle undoubtedly wishes it wasn't a part of.

The DoJ says "Oracle knowingly failed to meet its contractual obligations to provide GSA with current, accurate, and complete information about it commercial sales practices, including discounts offered to other custoemrs, and that Oracle knowingly made false statements to GSA about its sales practices and discounts." What it boils down to is Oracle giving its commercial customers bigger discounts than what the GSA received.
