The State of the Union, Suspension and Debarment Edition
On June 15, 2016, the Interagency Suspension and Debarment Committee transmitted its annual report to Congress concerning the status of the federal suspension and debarment system, known as the “873 Report” after section 873 of Public Law 110-417, which requires the annual reporting. The 873 report evidences a slight decline in suspensions, proposed debarments, and debarments from FY 2014 to FY 2015, and an overall increase in the use of “alternatives to exclusion” such as administrative agreements (up 25 percent), and show cause letters (up 30 percent).
Associate Laura Baker (not admitted in the District of Columbia; practice supervised by partners of the firm) also contributed to this alert.
