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: "Valero self-reported [to the California Environmental Protection Agency] their failure to make proper notification of a marine vessel import of July 3, 2003, on the vessel O/S Philadelphia. One of the tanks into which the fuel was offloaded was designated a production tank, and a predictive model was in effect for that tank which the imported fuel did not meet, although it met all flat limits. The case was settled for $7,500 and was closed in June 2005."
