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:
PROTECTING THE GOVERNMENT'S INTEREST WHEN SUBCONTRACTING WITH
CONTRACTORS DEBARRED, SUSPENDED, OR PROPOSED FOR DEBARMENT
(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
(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).
