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.

Flight Service Station Problems
Date: 06/05/2007 (Date of FAA Announcement)
Misconduct Type: Poor Contract Performance
Enforcement Agency: Transportation
Contracting Party: Transportation
Court Type: Administrative
Disposition: Administrative Agreement
Synopsis: The Federal Aviation Administration announced it withheld $3 million in payments to Flight Service Station contractor Lockheed Martin in the first quarter because of poor performance under a contract to provide preflight briefings to small plane pilots. Lockheed took over the 58 FSS facilities under a $1.7 billion contract in October 2005. Since the beginning of 2007, pilots have complained about being on hold for extended times while waiting for preflight briefings on weather and other flight conditions. More penalties might be in store for Lockheed in the second quarter, when pilot complaints sharply increased.
