Who can’t do business with USAID?

    Individuals and companies suspended, debarred or proposed for debarment by the U.S. Agency for International Development currently totals 70. The figure is based on the latest tally by the agency, dated March 25.

    The roster also includes one individual debarred by the Peace Corps.

    The list can be seen on the Compliance and Oversight of Partner Performance Division Red Alerts section of the USAID website. It is compiled by the USAID Compliance and Oversight for Partner Performance Division, which was created in February 2011 to track trends in partner performance issues, the compliance of partners with U.S. federal regulations, and to sanction organizations or individuals with suspension or debarment “as necessary.”

    The USAID website does not specify the grounds for suspension or debarment. A separate website called System for Award Management provides such information.
