Nonprocurement debarment and suspension
Comments/Notes on Adjudication Structure:
Respondents may contest a suspension/debarment by presenting the suspending/debarring official with information -- orally or in writing (at their discretion, though "important" information should also be presented in writing if first presented orally) -- in opposition to the adverse action. Such presentations, if oral, are in the nature of informal meetings. (2 C.F.R. 180.720, 180.740, 180.815, 180.835). Respondents may also be afforded an "additional opportunity" to present evidence at a more trial-type hearing if the suspending/debarring official determines there is genuine dispute over facts material to the suspension or debarment. (2 C.F.R. 180.735, 180.745, 180.830, 180.840). Suspending/debarring officials may, at their discretion, refer disputed material facts to "another official" (unspecified) for a fact-finding hearing. (2 CFR 180.750((b), 180.845(c)).
