Givens, Superior in the dock for Pentagon bribes

US-based freight forwarder Givens Air Freight, operating under the name Superior Air, is being prosecuted for allegedly bribing Pentagon managers to win contracts.

Prosecutors say Daniel Whitehurst, national accounts manager, and Mark Lamb, vice-president and general manager, gave 402 ‘items of value’ totalling US$44,000 to primary contractors between 2000 to 2006. In return Givens/Superior won subcontracts worth $2 million. The items included “gifts, cash, entertainment, free accommodations in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and travel expenses”.

The government is looking for restitution of at least $3.4 million.
