Firm to reimburse public entities for overcharging

Rochester Business Journal
November 12, 2013

The Greece Central School District will be repaid $3,565, and 17 other public entities in the Rochester area also will be reimbursed by a Long Island company as part of an $11 million settlement involving overcharged customers, state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced Tuesday.

CA Inc.—formerly known as Computer Associates—engaged in a scheme to overcharge government customers, school districts and law enforcement agencies for computer software maintenance and serving plans sold from 2001 to 2009, the attorney general’s office said.

The $11 million will be distributed to 179 entities.

The town of Pittsford will get $3,100; the town of Perinton will get $2,325 and the town of Penfield will get $2,015, the attorney general’s office said. The Honeoye Falls-Lima School District and Ontario County each will get $1,550. The Hilton Central School District will get $930. The North Greece Fire District and the town of Victor each will get $620. Wayne County will get $465.

The city of Rochester, the towns of Mendon and Sweden, the Newark Housing Authority and Orleans County will get $310 each. The village of Hilton, the town of Irondequoit and the Newark Central School District will each get $155.

CA’s overcharges involved renewals of annual maintenance protection plans before the previous year’s plan expired, causing double billing, the attorney general’s office said.

The states of New York, California, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada and Virginia, and the District of Columbia will divvy up more than $3 million, the attorney general’s office said. New York will get $708,795.
