52.209-6 Protecting the Government's Interest when Subcontracting with Contractors Debarred, Suspended, or Proposed for Debarment.

As prescribed in 9.409(b), insert the following clause:
(MAY 1989)
(a) The Government suspends or debars Contractors to protect the Government's interests. Contractors shall not enter into any subcontracts equal to or in excess of $25,000 with a Contractor that has been debarred, suspended, or proposed for debarment unless there is a compelling reason to do so. If a Contractor intends to subcontract with a party that is debarred, suspended, or proposed for debarment (see FAR 9.404 for information on the list of Parties Excluded from Procurement Programs), a corporate officer or designee of the Contractor shall notify the Contracting Officer, in writing, before entering into such subcontract. The notice must include the following:
(1) The name of the subcontractor;
(2) The Contractor's knowledge of the reasons for the subcontractor being on the list of Parties Excluded from Procurement Programs;
(3) The compelling reason(s) for doing business with the subcontractor notwithstanding its inclusion on the list of Parties Excluded from Procurement Programs; and
(4) The systems and procedures the Contractor has established to ensure that it is fully protecting the Government's interests when dealing with such subcontractor in view of the specific basis for the party's debarment, suspension, or proposed debarment.
(b) The Contractor's compliance with the requirements of 52.209-6 will be reviewed during Contractor Purchasing System Reviews (see FAR Subpart 44.3).
