Welcome to the General Services Administration (GSA) "List of Parties Excluded from Federal
Procurement and Nonprocurement Programs" (List). GSA's List provides an up to date source
of information on those firms and individuals that have been suspended, debarred or
otherwise excluded from Federal Procurement and Nonprocurement Programs. Users of
the List are able to conduct a search by name of the excluded firm or individual,
and to "download" various reports on excluded parties into other computer systems.
The reports currently available for this purpose are the "List Report", the
"Supplemental Report", the "Agency Report", the "Lists Data Report", the ""Supplemental Data Report",
and the "CT Code Report", hereinafter Reports.
The Reports afford the users the option of selecting "Procurement" data,"Nonprocurement"
data,"Reciprocal" data or "All" data (both procurement and nonprocurement) for the purpose of
downloading into another computer system.
In the past, to ensure that the use of these
reports was consistent with the Computer Matching and Privacy Act of 1988 (Act), GSA
issued a password to users that allowed downloading of these reports. GSA will no
longer issue passwords to Government or private users. Instead, your acceptance
of the limitations summarized below will allow immediate access and downloading
of all information contained in the List.
Procurement only data may be
downloaded without regard to the limitations noted below.
The Act applies
when the following four elements are present:
comparison of data: If the comparison is made by two or more computers using
two or more automated systems of Federal agency records covered by the Privacy Act.
The List is such a system of records. A state or local government's use of a Federal
agency's automated system of records in conjunction with an automated system maintained
by the state or local government for the purpose of determining eligibility for Federal
benefits may also require compliance with the Act. Similarly, a contractor of a Federal
agency or state or local government may use a Federal agency's automated data base for
the purpose of determining eligibility for Federal benefits in a manner which triggers
- Categories of subjects covered:
Applicants for Federal benefit programs, current or former program beneficiaries,
and providers of services to support Federal benefit programs are covered.
- Types of Programs covered:
Only Federal benefit Programs providing cash or in kind assistance to individuals
are covered. Programs that use records about subjects who are not individuals,
as defined by Section (a)(2) of the Privacy Act, are not covered.
- Matching Purpose: The match must be for the purpose of:
(a) establishing or verifying eligibility for Federal benefit programs;
(b) verifying the statutory or regulatory requirements of such programs, or;
(c) recouping payments or delinquent debts under Federal benefit programs.
Detailed information concerning compliance with the Act is contained in the
Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) "Final Guidance Interpreting the Provisions
of Public Law 100 503, Computer Matching and Privacy Act of 1988; Notices"
published at 54 Fed. Reg. 25818, June 19, 1989. (OMB Matching Guidelines).
The provisions of the OMB Matching Guidelines applicable to the use of data
from the "Nonprocurement" and "All" options of the Reports are summarized below.
- GSA is the "Source Agency" for the purposes of complying with the Act.
If a Federal agency uses data from the Reports to conduct computer matches covered
by the Act, then the agency is a "Recipient Agency". Recipient agencies are
responsible for publishing matching notices in the Federal Register, results of
the cost benefit analysis, and submitting matching program reports to Congress and OMB.
- If a state or local government, or a contractor, uses data from the Reports
in a manner that triggers the Act, then GSA is responsible for meeting the
requirements of the "Source Agency" set forth in the OMB Matching Guidelines.
Please inform state and local officials responsible for administering your
agency's program, if appropriate.
The OMB Matching Guidelines should be reviewed to determine whether the Act
applies to your program's use of the "Nonprocurement" and "All" options of
