Proposed Consolidation of Civilian Suspension and Debarment Offices


On February 7, Chairman Issa of the House Oversight Committee released a discussion draft of legislation that would consolidate more than forty civilian agency suspension and debarment offices and functions into one, centralized "Board of Civilian Suspension and Debarment" in GSA on October 1, 2014. The draft Stop Unworthy Spending Act, or SUSPEND Act, would also permit the newly formed board to enter into agreements to perform suspension and debarment activities for entities other than civilian agencies; consolidate the procurement and non-procurement regulations; require heightened public availability to proceedings and administrative agreements; and provide an expedited process for appropriate matters.
