SUSPEND Act Gets Moving

November 13, 2013

On October 29, the House Oversight Committee passed out of committee the Stop Unworthy Spending, or SUSPEND, Act, legislation that would, effective FY2017, consolidate agency suspension and debarment offices into a single "Board of Suspension and Debarment" at GSA and unify the procurement and non-procurement suspension and debarment regulations, among other changes. The SUSPEND Act contains exceptions to allow offices of major agencies to remain in place in certain specified circumstances and for the SBA to retain its authority to suspend or debar entities for misrepresentation of small business status.
