GAO Advises Agencies On Upping Contractor Suspensions
Oct.07.2011 — Government Contracts Law360
Washington, D.C.-based Government Contracts Group counsel Peter J. Eyre speaks to Government Contracts Law360 about the U.S. Government Accountability Office’s recent reports on wasteful contract spending and its research into the suspension and debarment processes at 10 agencies to learn why some agencies are more compliant and vigilant than others.
According to Eyre, “There is a clear suggestion that this is a tool that the government should use more often. And, because of the draconian nature of suspension and debarment, this is something contractors should be watching closely."
