On August 30, 2022, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) suspended a New York painting contractor, Spectrum Painting Corp., from non-procurement Federal contracting. In July 2021, Spectrum and the U.S. Government entered into a stipulation and order of settlement and dismissal in which Spectrum admitted that between 2011 and 2013, it provided false payment claims and knowingly misrepresented the work of its employees on two federally funded projects requiring disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) participation. Spectrum was not a DBE.
Note: A suspension or debarment frequently covers a specific period of time. Please consult the System for Award Management to determine whether a company or individual is currently suspended or debarred.
