Violation Description: 

Focused Technologies Imaging Services agreed to pay $2.1 million to resolve allegations that it unlawfully outsourced government-funded work to a subcontractor based in Mumbai, India in 2008 and 2009. The outsourcing was illegal because even though FTIS was required to perform the work at a warehouse in Albany, New York, FTIS unlawfully sent personal information of over 16 million people to a foreign business that was unauthorized to receive this information. The outsourcing also resulted in the failure of FTIS to adhere to a requirement that over 50% of the labor hours of the contract be performed by individuals with disabilities.
