On May 8, 2020, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) debarred Frank James Lyon, president of Lyon Associates, Inc., from participating in Federal nonprocurement and procurement transactions for 3 years.
Lyon was sentenced on May 13, 2019, to 30 months’ imprisonment, 36 months’ supervised release, and a $100 assessment fee after previously pleading guilty to Federal program fraud and conspiracy to violate the anti-bribery provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Between 2006 and 2016, Lyon and his co-conspirators bribed officials in the Federated States of Micronesia and the State of Hawaii in exchange for contracts valued at more than $10 million.
DOT-OIG is conducting this investigation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
