Ducci Electrical Contractors, Inc. has agreed to pay more than $3.2 million to resolve criminal and civil charges alleging fraud on two public construction contracts in Connecticut that were largely funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program.  The two contracts—one from 2007 that was valued at over $79 million, and the other from 2012 that was valued at nearly $7 million—Ducci indicated that it would subcontract with a particular DBE at 13% and 12% respectively.  However, in violation of the terms of the program, Ducci controlled most of the decisions made by the DBE, preventing the DBE from performing a commercially useful function on either contract, and falsely submitted to the government that the DBE had performed the work.  USAO CT
