OKLAHOMA CITY — A government contractor has agreed to pay $380,000 to settle civil claims involving allegations that it broke the law by submitting false claims to the U.S. Air Force.

Federal prosecutors in Oklahoma City announced the terms of the settlement on Thursday.

Prosecutors say the contractor, Computer Sciences Corporation, contracted with the Air Force to provide aircraft maintenance services at Vance Air Force Base.

Authorities alleged that the company submitted false claims for payment to the Air Force from 2008 to 2013 for painting, non-destructive inspections and pressure tests of hydraulic actuators in T-38 aircraft that were not performed.

The settlement means CSC did not acknowledge liability and the government did not make any concessions regarding the legitimacy of the claims.
