Summary
To protect the government's interests, any agency can exclude (i.e., debar or suspend) parties from receiving federal contracts or assistance for a range of offenses. Exclusions of companies or individuals from federal contracts or other funding are listed in the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS), a Web-based system maintained by GSA. Recent allegations indicate that excluded parties have been able to receive federal contracts. As a result, GAO was asked (1) to determine whether these allegations could be substantiated and (2) to identify the key causes of any improper awards and other payments detected. GAO investigated parties that were excluded for offenses such as fraud, theft, and violations of federal statutes and received awards in excess of $1,000. GAO recommends that GSA take actions to strengthen controls over EPLS, including issuing guidance to agency officials on EPLS requirements, ensuring that EPLS requires the entrance of contractor identification numbers, and strengthening search functions. GSA agreed with these recommendations and outlined several actions it has taken or plans to take. However, the actions described do not achieve the intent of GAO's recommendations. GSA simply restated its current policies instead of agreeing to take steps to oversee the completeness of EPLS and ensure that exclusions are properly enforced
