(See Code N- Debarment pursuant to FAR 9.406 2(b)(2) Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988.)

Treatment
Contractors are excluded from receiving contracts and from directly or indirectly receiving benefits under Federal nonprocurement programs, and agencies shall not solicit offers from, award contract to renew or otherwise extend the duration of current contracts, or consent to subcontracts with these contractors, unless the acquiring agency's head or a designee determines that there is a compelling reason for such action. Government prime contractors, when required by the terms of their contract, shall not enter into any subcontract equal to or in excess of $25,000 with a contractor that is debarred, suspended, or proposed for debarment, unless there is a compelling reason to do so. Debarments are for a specified term as determined by the debarring agency and as indicated in the listing.
A1

Cause
Proposed debarment by an agency pursuant to FAR 9.406-2 for one or more of the causes listed in FAR 9.406.2. (See Code N1- Proposed debarment pursuant to FAR 9.406-2(b)(2) Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988.)

Treatment

Subcontracts awarded with appropriated Federal funds shall also be denied. The denial shall terminate on the date shown. Persons convicted for a third offense relating to distribution of controlled substances after the effective date of the Act shall be denied benefits permanently. Therefore, the termination date for such denials shall be listed as "Permanent" (Perm.)
B

Cause
Suspension by an agency pending completion of investigation or legal proceedings pursuant to FAR 9.407-2, GPO Instructions 110.11A, or PS Publication 41, and based on (a) an indictment for, or adequate evidence of, the commission of fraud, antitrust violations, embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, false statements, or other offenses indicating a lack of business integrity; or (b) adequate evidence of any other cause of a serious and compelling nature. (See Code O-Suspension pursuant to FAR 9.407-2(a)(4) Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988.)

Treatment

NOTE Debarment and suspension actions taken in accordance with policies and procedures sot forth in the FAR 9.4 are effective throughout the Executive Branch. Debarment and suspension actions taken in accordance with GPO Instructions 110.11A and PS Publication 41 are effective only within GPO or the PS as listed proceeding the listed party.

The denial shall terminate on the date included in the listing. Persons convicted for a third offense relating to distribution of controlled substances after the effective date of the Act shall be denied benefits permanently. Therefore, the termination date for such denials shall be listed as "Permanent" (Perm.). NOTE A denial of benefits under Section 5301 of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988 does not include benefits relating to long-term drug treatment programs for addiction for any person who declares himself an addict, provides a reasonable body of evidence to substantiate this declaration, and submits to a long-term treatment program for addiction, or is deemed to be rehabilitated pursuant to rules established by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
