Suspension and Debarment Vedder Service

Government contractors must be aware of the increasingly wide range of actions and activities—including those with no direct connection to the performance of government contracts—that can serve as a basis for initiating severe measures such as suspension or debarment.

Informed advocacy often makes a significant difference in terms of avoiding or obtaining the withdrawal of these sanctions. We can assist with early disclosure of facts and implementation of corrective action to avoid imposition of suspension or debarment proceedings altogether. Where such actions are already underway, we can provide representation in negotiations with agency debarment officials and assist with implementing plans to lift the suspension or debarment.

Our attorneys have successfully resolved cases involving an array of alleged offenses, and they have appeared before the suspension and debarment officials of numerous federal agencies.
