Item 8.01 Other Events

On December 30, 2009, The PBSJ Corporation (the “Company”) reported the following in a Form 12b-25:

The PBSJ Corporation (the “Company”) is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2009 (the “Form 10-K”) prior to the filing deadline due to an internal investigation being conducted by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors. The purpose of the internal investigation is to determine whether any laws have been violated, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, in connection with certain projects undertaken by PBS&J International, Inc., one of the Company’s subsidiaries, in certain foreign countries. The Company is unable to determine at this time (i) whether the results of the internal investigation will indicate that its internal controls over financial reporting were not operating effectively, (ii) the impact, if any, such internal investigation may have on the Company’s annual report on internal control over financial reporting that the Company is required to include in the Form 10-K, or (iii) the effect, if any, such internal investigation may have on the Company’s financial statements to be included in the Form 10-K. The Company has self-reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and the Department of Justice (the “DOJ”) the circumstances surrounding this internal investigation. Should the SEC or DOJ decide to conduct its own investigation, the Company will cooperate fully. As the Company’s internal investigation is ongoing, the Company cannot predict with certainty at this time the final outcome of such investigation or any investigation that the SEC or DOJ may conduct, including any fines or penalties that may be imposed.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

The PBSJ Corporation
