Suspension & Debarment Pitfalls10/06/2016 Duración: 01h27min
Government Contracting Compliance should be at the forefront of any successful Government Contracting Business. Small and large businesses do not always recognize all of the internal controls that are required by contracting with the Federal Government. This lack of recognition of the importance and implementation of these controls can potentially lead to suspension and or debarment.

Recently released Department of Defense debarment statistics show that the number of suspension and debarment actions initiated by defense agencies continue to rise, in some cases significantly. For example, in fiscal year 2015, the Army issued 456 debarments compared to 262 debarments in 2014. Please join this incredible pane
