Leidos Holdings under investigation for alleged FCPA violations
Leidos Holdings, a Virginia-based information technology, engineering, aerospace, and defense firm, disclosed it is under investigation by federal law enforcement for alleged violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
In a quarterly filing issued Tuesday, Leidos said its internal processes discovered possible violations of the FCPA in late 2021 by its “employees, third-party representatives, and subcontractors” who work for the company’s international business.
The company launched an internal investigation into the alleged violations of the FCPA and voluntarily reported the existence of the probe to both the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission. The company’s internal investigation is ongoing, Leidos said in its disclosure.
