Gun maker FN agrees to pay $1.1 million to resolve allegations

Aug 4, 2010 12:09:00 PM - thestate.com
Columbia gun maker FN Manufacturing has agreed to pay the federal government $1.1 million to resolve allegations of failing to provide mentoring services to minority-owned companies, U.S Attorney Bill Nettles announced today.

The Department of Defense paid FN Manufacturing $433,557 to provide these services. But the company was accused of having “completely failed” to offer mentoring and contracted out the work, which violated its government agreement, Nettles said.

"This is a significant settlement,” he said in a statement.

Efforts to reach FN Manufacturing officials today were unsuccessful.

Joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbia on the investigation were the Department of Defense’s Defense Criminal Investigative Service and the Army’s Criminal Investigative Division.
