House Introduces Bill to Consolidate Suspension and Debarment Offices

On October 28, 2013, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), along with several cosponsors, introduced the “Stop Unworthy Spending (SUSPEND) Act” (H.R. 3345). This bill would reform the federal suspension and debarment process by consolidating more than 40 executive agency suspension and debarment offices into one centralized board. Under the bill, larger agencies would be allowed to continue operating their own suspension and debarment offices, but only if they can demonstrate effectiveness. Additionally, the bill would combine the separate regulations currently governing contracts and grants into a single regulation for both. The bill was referred to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
