Century Steel Erectors Company, L.P. (Century Steel) and its owner, Donald Taylor, were debarred by FHWA on December 26, 2018. This debarment will last three years.
Taylor previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges for his role in a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) fraud scheme involving federally funded bridge projects in Pennsylvania. He admitted that he joined and presided over a pass-through scheme in which Century Steel used a certified DBE as a front company to obtain profits from DBE subcontracts.
