BP Suspended From New Government Contracts

The EPA has announced that BP has temporarily been suspended from new contracts with the federal government.

The EPA has announced that BP has temporarily been suspended from new contracts with the federal government.

EPA says the move is due to BP’s lack of business integrity as demonstrated by the company’s conduct with regard to the Deepwater Horizon blowout, explosion, oil spill, and response, as reflected by the filing of a criminal information.

The BP suspension will temporarily prevent the company and the named affiliates from getting new federal government contracts, grants or other covered transactions until the company can provide sufficient evidence to EPA demonstrating that it meets Federal business standards. The suspension does not affect existing agreements BP may have with the government.
