FORMER EMPLOYEE SUES IBM OVER PROCUREMENT TECHNIQUES

By CBR Staff Writer

A former IBM Corp marketing representative is suing the company and two of her supervisors alleging that they forced her to resume a sexual relationship with a senior Defense Department official whose attentions had been sufficiently unwelcome that she had moved to Los Angeles and IBM to escape them – in order to secure Advanced Research Projects Agency funding for the company; she alleges that managers at IBM pressed her to use her past relationship to advance IBM interests and to find a way around the normal government procurement cycle; she says that in an act of desperation, she went to bed with Dr Denman in exchange for his promise to get IBM into his funding channel, and the next day, talks began between Denman and IBM staff.
