Successful Representation of IT Company and its President/Owner in a Proposed Debarment by the Air Force

Client Type: Individual, Private Company

We were engaged by a small, minority-owned information technology services company and its President/Owner to respond to notices of proposed debarment issued by Air Force. The basis of the proposed debarments of the company and its owner were allegedly false statements made in a prior suspension proceeding relating to conflicts of interest and product substitution by a former subcontractor. In addition to the proposed debarment, the subcontractor's misconduct was investigated by the Department of Justice, multiple agency Inspectors General, as well as the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.

We submitted a response to the Air Force Suspending and Debarring Official ("SDO") addressing the agency's concerns, and shortly thereafter met with the SDO in person. Within three days of that meeting the proposed debarment was terminated without an administrative agreement, allowing the company and its President to continue offering valuable IT services to the government.
