Brief Description of Case Type: 
These cases are suspension and debarment actions against recipients of SBA assistance (including grants, cooperative agreements and other financial assistance awards) who violate the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 by failing to maintain a drug-free workplace or engaging in unlawful drug-related activity. See 13 CFR 147.100; see also 13 CFR 147.200 and 147.300. The SBA may suspend or terminate award payments, which triggers no adjudication, but it may also suspend or debar the recipient from participating in procurement or nonprocurement transactions entirely. See 13 CFR 147.510. If it does the latter, the SBA follows the procedures under 13 CFR Part 145, which was removed and relocated to 2 CFR Part 2700, which in turn relies upon the appeal procedures of 13 CFR Part 134. See 13 CFR 147.510(c); 2 CFR 2700.765 and 2700.890.
