A Review of HHS's Suspension and Debarment in Protecting the Integrity of Federal Awards
HHS is the largest grant-making agency and third largest contracting agency in the Federal Government. Thus, it is important for HHS to have an effective suspension and debarment program. An effective suspension and debarment program protects the integrity of Government grants, contracts, loans, and other assistance programs by preventing awardees who demonstrate a lack of honesty, integrity, or performance from receiving additional Federal awards (i.e., grants, contracts, loans, and other forms of assistance). This study will describe the actions that HHS is taking to protect its awards and will determine the effective and potentially ineffective characteristics of the Department's suspension and debarment program.
