Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deirdre M. Daly said Monday that Sikorsky failed from 2008 to 2011 to disclose accurate, complete and current cost and pricing data to the Army purchasing unit that buys spare parts for the manufacturer’s Black Hawk helicopter.
Stratford, Conn.-based Sikorsky is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. It says in a statement that it’s pleased to have resolved the matter.
Daly says Sikorsky’s actions created an uneven playing field in negotiations that “tilted unfairly” in its favor.
Military contractors are required by law to disclose accurate, complete and current cost and pricing data to the government during negotiations.
