RPM Accused of Submitting False Claims to the U.S. General Services Administration

On August 27, 2013, RPM announced that the company has agreed to pay approximately $65.1 million to settle claims that one of its subsidiaries filed false claims with the U.S. General Services Administration for roofing supplies and services.  According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the RPM subsidiary knowingly violated its contractual obligation to provide the GSA with current, accurate, and complete information regarding its commercial pricing and discounting practices.  As a result, from January 2002 to March 2011, the RPM subsidiary did not consistently provide government agencies the contractually required pricing.
