What is Qui Tam?

Qui Tam (“He who sues on behalf of the king as well as for himself”) is a provision of the Federal Civil False Claims Act that allows a private citizen to file a suit in the name of the U.S. Government charging fraud by government contractors or other entities who receive or use government funds, and share in any money recovered.
