Suspension + Debarment
Suspension or debarment from Federal contracting can have a devastating impact on a government contractor and its principals. In fact, most companies fail to recover from a debarment. As such, having effective representation to assist in responding to a notice of suspension or debarment is absolutely critical.
Leveraging extensive experience in all aspects of government contracting, and knowledge of the defense, security, and intelligence sectors, Fluet attorneys represent government contractors before all Federal suspension and debarment officials (SDO). From assessing business practices for the “present responsibility” required under the Federal Acquisition Regulations, to conducting due diligence on potential investments and acquisitions for the purposes of evaluating exposure to potential suspension or debarment, to responding to proposed suspensions and debarments, Fluet attorneys are perfectly positioned to advise contractors and their owners, directors, and officers on the topic of suspension and debarment.
Noteworthy examples of Fluet’s successes in the area of Suspension and Debarment include:
- Successfully resolving the proposed debarment of a party that was accused by the Department of the Navy of improperly obtaining source selection sensitive information.
- Successfully resolving the proposed debarment of a party that was accused by the Department of Transportation of falsifying documents.
