On September 20, 2023, the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Michigan filed an information charging Daniel Israel, president and part-owner of an asphalt paving company, with conspiracy to commit bid-rigging. According to the information, as early as March 2013 until at least November 2018, Israel entered into and engaged in a conspiracy with another company and co-conspirators to suppress and eliminate competition by agreeing to rig bids for asphalt paving services in Michigan.
DOT-OIG is conducting this investigation with the U.S. Postal Service OIG.
