Data-Driven Look at Suspension/Debarment Trends

Nov.02.2018

David Robbins and Laura Baker published an article in Law360 using System for Award Management data to explore the current state of government suspension/debarment efforts. Proactive outreach appears to have changed the practice of government-side suspension/debarment. Two implications: (1) contractors that do not reach out proactively to frame the issues may face a more difficult time in convincing the government that suspension/debarment (or an administrative agreement) is unnecessary; and, (2) small businesses are overwhelmingly more likely to face exclusion than large businesses.
