Blackwater Announces Advanced Export Compliance Initiative

Government contractor Blackwater Worldwide, which has been the subject of government investigations on export controls and other issues, announced (pdf) that the company has undertaken a "comprehensive initiative to enhance export compliance throughout its global operations."

The initiative includes the creation of a three-person independent committee of outside experts to oversee export compliance and the addition of a Vice President of Export Compliance. These efforts will be supported by a global training initiative, proposed enhanced business controls and an increased compliance staff.

Blackwater's Export Compliance Committee will consist of:

  • Robert C. Bonner - Former U.S. Attorney; U.S. District Court Judge; Commissioner of U.S. Customs; first Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection; and Administrator of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
  • Asa Hutchinson - Former U.S. Attorney; Administrator of the DEA; U.S. Congressman; and first Under Secretary of Homeland Security.
  • Carol R. Marshall - Former Vice President of Ethics and Business Conduct at Lockheed Martin; Senior Vice President, Ethics and Business Conduct at MCI; Chair of the Ethics Resource Center Fellows Program; and Chair and Working Group Liaison to the Defense Industry Initiative on Business Ethics.
Blackwater's new Vice President of Export Compliance will be Karen Jones, who most recently served as Director, Import Export Operations, Raytheon Missile Systems Division.
