Honeywell International, Inc. and Honeywell Building Solutions SES Corporation agreed to pay $4 million to settle allegations that a contract with the City of Quincy failed to comply with state laws for energy management services. The Office of the Inspector General investigated the allegations and worked on the matter jointly with the Attorney General’s Office. The Honeywell contract was the first energy management services contract with a Massachusetts municipality. Inspector General Glenn A. Cunha said that, “There is a need for strong state oversight of energy management contracts and it is incumbent on municipalities to do careful due diligence before entering into this type of long-term contract.”
