I recently attended a legislative breakfast hosted by one of the construction related organizations in which I participate. A number of state legislators were present, as was a representative of the District Attorney’s office in Montgomery County. Because the District Attorney is an elected position in Pennsylvania, this has a certain amount of logic to it. That being said, it is something that is not done very often and caught my attention.

A subsidiary of Skanska avoided criminal prosecution by agreeing to pay a $19.6 million settlement over allegations that Skanska improperly took advantage of government set-aside programs. In conjunction with that settlement, it entered into a non-prosecution agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan. At the time of the settlement, Skanska was the low bidder on a large subway construction project and risked not having the contract awarded to it by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
