This scheme sets out the GSA's procedures for suspending or debarring contractors under the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) system, which establishes uniform policies for the acquisition of supplies and services by executive agencies. Those regulations require agencies to promulgate procedures governing how they may prosecute cases of debarment and suspension. See FAR 9.406-3(b); 9.407-3(b). The GSA has done this largely through 48 CFR 509.406-3, the section governing debarment procedures. A later provision found at 48 CFR 509.407-3(a), governing suspension proceedings, largely adopts the procedures for debarment and carries them over to suspension cases.
