About POGO's Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
The government awards contracts to companies with histories of misconduct such as contract fraud and environmental, ethics, and labor violations. In the absence of a centralized federal database listing instances of misconduct, the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) is providing such data. We believe that it will lead to improved contracting decisions and public access to information about how the government spends hundreds of billions of taxpayer money each year on goods and services.

Synopsis: In January 2006, a CBS News affiliate reported that Boeing agreed to pay $30 million to settle claims that the nearly 100 neighbors of the Santa Susana Field nuclear research facility were sickened by decades of radioactive and toxic contamination. The settlement, which ended an eight-year legal battle, was supposed to remain confidential, but one of the plaintiffs divulged the terms to the local media. POGO was unable to independently confirm the settlement amount.
