2016 Suspension & Debarment Workshop
On behalf of the Suspension and Debarment Working Group of the Council of Inspectors General for Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) and the Interagency Suspension and Debarment Committee (ISDC), we welcome you to the 2016 Suspension and Debarment Workshop at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia on November 18, 2016.
Suspension and debarment are valuable administrative tools that agencies can use to protect scarce funds from fraud, waste, abuse, poor performance, and noncompliance with contract provisions or applicable law. This year's event theme is "Suspension, Debarment and Coordination of Remedies: Effective Lifecycle Communication is the Key" and will consist of panels of experts who will discuss various topics, such as Triggers for S&D, Parallel Proceedings, Fact & Indictment-based Suspension pending Criminal Action and Protecting Current Awards. The program is designed to provide stimulating interaction between key communities involved in the suspension and debarment process: Suspension and Debarment Officials, Offices of Inspectors General, and the U.S. Department of Justice.
