Gov Con Brief – Misrepresenting Size Status Penalties

When a government contract is reserved, set aside, or otherwise classified as intended for award to a small business, severe penalties ensue if an awardee is not a small business concern and willfully sought and received the award by misrepresenting its size status. Penalties include suspension or debarment, civil damages under the FCA and other fraud statutes, and even criminal culpability.
