FH+H Attorneys Successfully Defend Federal Contractor Against Proposed Debarment

FH+H attorneys Dave Jonas and Rachel Leahey successfully fought back against the proposed debarment of a federal contractor, ultimately resulting in the agency’s decision to terminate its proposed debarment.

Debarment from federal contracting is a serious matter. A debarment by one agency is effective for every agency throughout the entire Executive Branch of the federal government. 

As such, federal agencies will not solicit offers, award contracts, renew or otherwise extend existing contracts, or approve subcontracts requiring sign-off by the government with a debarred individual – absent specific written approval from the head of the agency. If employed by a federal contractor, a debarred individual may not conduct business with the federal government as an agent or representative of the employing contractor. 

Debarment unquestionably has a serious impact on the career of anyone working in government contracts. Once a proposed debarment is terminated, however, there is no “black mark” on the contractor’s record.

FH+H attorneys have extensive experience in making persuasive legal arguments before suspension and debarment officials, as part of the firm’s robust Government Contracts practice.
