Lucent won a quarter-billion-dollar contract to design and build a first responder net for police, fire and medical assistance.
The settlement was to resolve a whistleblower suit filed by the former contract manager for the project. He will receive $758,000 of the settlement for blowing that whistle.
"The integrity of our public contracting system is a matter of paramount concern to the Department of Justice, especially where contractors have been engaged to supply critical support for the work of stabilizing Iraq and Afghanistan," said Stuart Delery, acting assistant attorney general for the DOJ's Civil Division.
