April 8 (Reuters) - A retired U.S. Army colonel has agreed to plead guilty to negotiating a job with financier Lynn Tilton's private equity firm while also taking steps to ensure a helicopter company it controlled got paid faster by the Department of Defense.

A plea agreement for retired officer Norbert Vergez was filed on Tuesday in a federal court in Alabama. Vergez also agreed to admit to failing to disclose receiving $30,000 for relocation expenses from his future employer, court papers show.
