CAP Action Supports Better Implementation of Contractor Responsibility Database

Letter from the American Worker Project's David Madland in support of better implementation of the contractor responsibility database.

The Center for American Progress Action Fund urges the Obama administration to fix the proposed rules implementing the contractor responsibility database so that the database captures a company’s complete record of legal compliance, is available to the public, and can be properly used when determining a company’s record of business ethics and integrity. Significant and/or repeat violators of workplace and other laws are likely to continue receiving federal contracts if these changes are not implemented.
