Filed By: 
Federal Agency
Brief Description of Case Type: 
Removal proceedings against an Independent Public Accountant (IPA) that provides required audit services to an LSC grantee. Grounds for removal include the IPA's failure to comply with federal auditing standards or other guidance, revocation of its license, debarment by another specified entity, conviction for an offense implicating the IPA's integrity, or a liability finding in a civil action implicating the IPA's integrity. Proceedings are initiated by issuance of a notice of proposed debarment and provide the subject IPA an opportunity to present evidence and argument militating against the proposed debarment. Removal precludes an IPA from providing audit services to an LSC grantee under an existing audit services contract or providing audit services as an agent or representative of another IPA.
