Office of the Comptroller

TO: University Administrators
FROM: Robert Smentek
SUBJECT: Debarred Vendors and
Excluded Parties Certificate
of Compliance
DATE: April 16, 2001

The University is required to make payments only to suppliers who are in good standing with the federal government. As a result of this requirement, we cannot buy or pay any supplier who is banned from doing business with the federal government. The federal government classifies these suppliers as "debarred or excluded". This same requirement also prevents us from reimbursing any individual for goods obtained from a debarred or excluded supplier.

To comply with this regulation, it is imperative that employees verify that a supplier has not been "debarred or excluded" prior to transacting any business with the supplier. This applies to all procurement and disbursement transactions.

Effective June 1, 2001, a Debarred Vendors and Excluded Parties Certificate of Compliance Form will be required each time a payment to a new vendor is requested for the following:

  • Consulting,
  • Entertainers and Performers,
  • One-Time Lecture Fees, and
  • Payments for Independent Personal Services (Independent Contractors) such as, but not limited to, caterers, editors, proofreaders, designers, photographers, other professional services and the like.
