NCUA’s final suspension and debarment procedures are effective Sept. 10

A set of final suspension and debarment procedures for contractors doing business with the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) are set to take effect Sept. 10. Published in the Federal Register Thursday, the procedures were approved by the NCUA Board during its Aug. 2 open meeting and are aimed at protecting the agency by helping to ensure the NCUA does business only with presently responsible contractors.

NCUA says the final procedures closely follow the suspension and debarment procedures of the Federal Acquisition Regulation, which already applies to government contractors. Where they vary, they do so only with respect to adjudication processes, the agency says.

The NCUA Board issued a notice for comment in March. The agency says the final notice, which sets forth administrative processes for contractors, will also be accessible via NCUA’s public website (
