Just a month after the company successfully defended itself against a whistleblower suit alleging fraud, Northrop Grumman has won another contract with the US Postal Service. Northrop was the contractor for the botched Flats Sequencing System (FSS), which resulted in several lawsuits, including the unsuccessful $874 million whistleblower suit.
Apparently the parties have kissed and made up- from today’s Washington Post:
Northrop Grumman of McLean won a contract worth up to $30 million from the U.S. Postal Service for professional, administrative and management support services.
21st Century Software of Ashburn won a contract worth up to $2.3 million from the U.S. Postal Service for research and development.
Intralox of Savage won a contract worth up to $2.4 million from the U.S. Postal Service for materials and handling equipment.
