Termination of Proposed Debarment Proceedings

We successfully represented a manufacturer in a debarment proceeding before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  The EPA proposed that our client be debarred from participation in future federal contracts and assistance activities for a period of three years following a guilty plea to one count of storing hazardous waste without a permit.  If debarred, the company’s name would have been published as “Ineligible” in the GSA’s System for Award Management (SAM) website, and it would not have been allowed to receive any federal contracts, certain federal assistance/loans, or approved subcontracts, or to act as an agent or representative on behalf of another in such transactions.  After a hearing before the EPA in Washington, D.C., the Hearing Official determined that debarment was not necessary and the proposed debarment was terminated.
