The Justice Department accused the Gallup Organization on Wednesday of bilking federal agencies out of millions of dollars by routinely inflating prices for contracts.
The 57-page civil complaint says that Gallup, the world’s best-known polling organization, inflated estimates for the number of hours that it would take to perform its polling services for the Treasury and State departments. …
William E. Kruse, a vice president and associate counsel with Gallup, said: “I’m confident that there were no inappropriate actions taken by Gallup staff on any government contract or any other contract for that matter.” [cont.]
