Two former officials of a now dissolved local government contractor for NASA and the Air Force have been charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States government using a program meant to benefit service-disabled veterans.

Minda L. Moore of KLSS Solutions in Greene County was indicted in Dayton’s U.S. District Court for “unlawfully securing services contracts and subcontracts,” including $1.4 million from NASA, according to court records.

Nicholas Borton reached a plea deal and is scheduled to be sentenced in August. No court dates have been scheduled in Moore’s case. Charges include conspiracy to file false claims, make false statements and wire fraud.

Court records allege Moore and Borton fraudulently held out KLSS Solutions as a set-aside business qualified as a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).
