Debarment & Suspension Policy

  • In order to prohibit the procurement of any goods or services ultimately funded by Federal awards from debarred, suspended or otherwise excluded parties, each bidder will be screened at the time of Bid response to ensure bidder, its principal and their named subcontractors are not debarred, suspended or otherwise excluded by the United States Government in compliance with the requirements of 7 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 3016.35, 28 CFR 66.35, 29 CFR 97.35, 34 CFR 80.35, 45 CFR 92.35 and Executive Order 12549.
    • The County will verify bidder, its principal and their named subcontractors are not on the Federal debarred, suspended or otherwise excluded list of vendors located at www.sam.gov.
  • The bidder, under penalty of perjury, certifies that, except as noted below, bidder, its Principal, and any named and unnamed subcontractor:
    • Is not currently under suspension, debarment, voluntary exclusion, or determination of ineligibility by any federal agency;
    • Has not been suspended, debarred, voluntarily excluded or determined ineligible by any federal agency within the past three years;
    • Does not have a proposed debarment pending; and
    • Has not been indicted, convicted, or had a civil judgment rendered against it by a court of competent jurisdiction in any matter involving fraud or official misconduct within the past three years.
  • If there are any exceptions to this certification, list the exceptions in Exhibit A – Bid Response Packet in the appropriate section marked Exceptions, Clarifications, Amendments.
    • Exceptions will not necessarily result in denial of award, but will be considered in determining bidder responsibility. For any exception noted, indicate to whom it applies, initiating agency, and dates of action.
  • Providing false information may result in criminal prosecution or administrative sanctions. The above certification is part of the Proposal. Signing Exhibit A (Bidder Acknowledgement) on the signature portion thereof shall constitute signature of this Certification.
