Scheme Nickname: 
Nonprocurement suspension and debarment

Informal adjudication proceedings for nonprocurement-related suspension and debarment pursuant to VA regulations adopting OMB Guidance setting forth procedural minima. (2 CFR Parts 180 & 801). VA regulations define "debarring officials" and "suspending officials" as the Under Secretaries for Health, Benefits, and Memorial Affairs.

While certain procedures are set out by regulation, the suspending or debarring official may use flexible procedures to allow respondents to oppose the agency's action. The adjudication process is intended to proceed on an expeditious basis. Respondents have 30 days to contest a Notice of Suspension or Notice of Proposed Debarment.
