The US False Claim Act as a Mean to Protect Administrative Contracts: A Comparative Study of the United States and Kuwait.

Auther : Dr. Khalifah T. Alhamidah

Goal of the study: A state is in danger to be over-charged in its administrative contracts. To prevent such a danger, the United States promulgated what is called the False Claim Act which seeks to protect the States against such dange.  This Act enforces different penalties on whoever exploits the state through these contracts. In the course of comparison, this study reviews detailed research in this Act in comparison to different Kuwaitis laws which were issued to achieve similar objective.
Study Methodology: The Study adopts the descriptive method to explain the US Act and its historical development. It also used the comparative method to show the extent of Kuwait need to promulgate such Act.
Study Results: The study pointed out that despite the fact Kuwait adopted many laws to protect the state from being overcharged in its administrative contracts, it did not arrange full protection to the state public money.
Study: In its conclusion, the study urges the Kuwaiti legislature to adopt the U.S. way in enacting direct act that prevents overcharging the state in its administrative contracts.
