A former federal contractor managed to collect more than $70,000 while simultaneously working for the agency responsible for national security and the agency overseeing the federal workforce, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Daniel Glauber pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to falsifying time sheets at the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Glauber was hired by OPM under contract as a systems administrator to work 40 hours a week in April 2012. The next month, NSA hired him as a subcontractor to work on computer systems 40 hours a week.

But ‘”neither agency was aware that he was working for the other” for four months, according to the DOJ. It was only after OPM terminated Glauber for falsifying time sheets — a discrepancy the OPM Office of Inspector General (IG) discovered in August 2012 — that OPM learned of his dual employment at NSA.

The OPM IG found Glauber billed OPM for 323.75 hours, worth $44,706, that he never worked, according to DOJ. NSA investigators later reviewed their building records and found they paid Glauber $26,940 for 269.5 hours he never worked.

Glauber likely faces between six and 12 months behind bars and a fine, according to the DOJ.

The DOJ didn’t say if a sentencing date is set.
