This scheme sets out the DOT's procedures for suspending or debarring persons participating in nonprocurement programs (i.e., not procurement contracts for good or services). This primarily includes financial assistance such as loan guarantees, subsidies, cooperative agreements, scholarships or grants. See 2 CFR 180.970(a); see also 2 CFR 1200.10 (adopting for DOT the regulations in 2 CFR Part 180, including those specifying the types of covered nonprocurement transactions). In adjudicating these disputes, DOT looks to the procedures in 2 CFR Part 180, which provides nonprocurement guidance to all federal agencies. See 2 CFR 1200.30.
