Corporate Monitor Selected for CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Co.

Posted: Updated:

NEAR RICHLAND, Wash. - The U.S. Attorney's Office in Spokane has appointed a former employee of the Securities and Exchange Commission to monitor the recording and reporting of CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company worker hours at Hanford.

The corporate monitor will make sure the contractor is complying with an agreement made in federal court after CH2M Hill Hanford Group workers admitted to defrauding the Department of Energy on time cards.  In March of this year CH2M Hill agreed to pay the Department of Justice $18.5 million in damages and penalties, and will pay for the corporate monitor for three years.
