The qui tam whistleblower reward, a provision under the False Claims Act, dates back to the Civil War. President Lincoln and Congress enacted this law to combat defense procurement fraud schemes by unscrupulous defense contractors.
Since the federal government lacked "insider knowledge" and resources needed to uncover these schemes, Lincoln wanted a law with a reward to encourage insiders to come forward with their private attorneys and disclose and help prosecute the fraud. Because of the ability for private individuals to bring a lawsuit on behalf of the Government and recover damages, the law is referred to as "qui tam" which is a Latin phrase fro the authority to act on behalf of oneself and the government.
The qui tam reward under the False Claims Act ranges 15% to 30% of the amount recovered by the government and depends on the extent to which the whistleblower and the whistleblower's counsel contribute to the prosecution of the case.
