UK to pay defence firm Raytheon $373M after tribunal award for unlawfully ending contract

LONDON - Britain's government says it will pay some 224 million pounds ($373 million) to defence firm Raytheon Systems Ltd. for unlawfully ending a contract for a program meant to collect information in advance about passengers travelling to and from Britain.

Britain's Home Secretary Theresa May told lawmaker Keith Vaz in a letter that authorities are looking at the Arbitration Tribunal's detailed conclusions to see if there are grounds for challenging the award.

But she says the government stands by its decision to end the eBorders contract. She says key milestones were missed and the program was running late.

Raytheon says in a statement Monday that the tribunal's ruling confirms that the company delivered substantial capabilities to the UK Home Office under the eBorders program.
