(Update: In a March 28 notice, FHWA announced that ACS Group was no longer excluded from federal contracting. No further details were released.)
From out of the blue on March 6 came a notification on a federal website that Actividades de Construccion y Servicios (ACS Group) had been suspended and possibly debarred from participating in any federally funded projects for as long as three years.
The decision stems from Davis Bacon wage violations on Virginia 95/495 committed by Midasco, a specialty highway contractor purchased by ACS in 2011. The company, together with ACS Group and Imes Inc., paid a $450,000 fine in July 2017.
