Each of us is responsible for ensuring that the information we record and report
as part of our daily job duties is truthful and accurate. Truthful and accurate
reporting includes the correct reporting of the time we have worked, our business
expenses, our own production or performance data and the production and performance
data of the company, and any other business-related activities on which we must
record and/or report data.
It is especially important that we each report and record information in connection
with company contracts accurately and truthfully. No company employee may intentionally
allocate costs to contracts in a manner that is contrary to the contract's provisions
or contrary to appropriate accounting practices. In addition, no company employee
may inaccurately identify labor costs in the company's records or submit or instruct
another company employee to submit time charges which do not accurately reflect
actual time worked on a particular contract. If you have a question about how data
related to a particular contract should be recorded, you should discuss it with
your supervisor, the company's legal department, and/or the company compliance officer.
This standard also specifically prohibits the falsification of any information in
any company record or document. If a co-worker or supervisor asks or instructs you
to report data that is not accurate or truthful, or to falsify data in any company
record or document, don't do it. Get in touch with the company's compliance officer
immediately and explain the situation and your concerns to him or her.
Any company employee who violates this standard will be subject to the full range
of disciplinary sanctions, up to and including termination for cause where appropriate.
