Suspension lifted for Booz Allen Texas office

Booz Allen Hamilton's San Antonio office has been removed from the U.S. government's Excluded Parties List System and has regained full eligibility to compete for new government contracts, the company announced in an April 13 statement.

Existing contract work was not affected by the listing, which took place on Feb. 6, 2012, the statement said.

The exclusion arose as a result of “actions of a former government employee hired by the firm who inappropriately retained and shared sensitive information about a pending government procurement that occurred in the firm's San Antonio office in 2011, which was previously disclosed by the firm.”

In an administrative agreement reached with the Air Force, “Booz Allen accepts responsibility for that incident and related matters and agrees to implement firm-wide enhancements to its ethics and compliance program, including future improvements identified by external advisors, to significantly mitigate the possibility of a re-occurrence of such issues.”

The three-year agreement runs from April 13, during which Booz Allen has agreed, among other things, to file quarterly reports with the Air Force regarding the firm's implementation of the remedial measures and also to adhere to a number of provisions relating to enhanced disclosure of employee misconduct or violations of the firm's ethics and compliance program.

Booz Allen Hamilton, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 9 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
