Feds Investigate Office Supply Vendor
April 18, 2013
The government is investigating whether an office supply contractor has been improperly selling products made in China in violation of the Trade Agreements Act, court records show.
The General Services Administration’s inspector general’s office has been investigating Florida-based Capitol Supply Inc. for more than two years, according to a motion the IG filed earlier this week in U.S. District Court in Washington. The motion asks a judge to force Capitol Supply Inc. to turn over billing, sales and other information in response to two subpoenas.
Separately, the Justice Department this week joined in a False Claims Act lawsuit filed against Capitol Supply. The suit, filed back in 2010 but unsealed on Monday, accuses the company of selling illegal office products to the government.
