Multiple Audit Findings on Not Conducting Federal Debarment Checks

The Washington State Auditor's Office recently issued a number of audit findings to various agencies for failing to check whether contractors selected were suspended or debarred from doing business with the federal government.  The requirement applies to contracts of $25,000 or more when a state or local agency is funding a project with federal funds.

The easiest way to check for federal suspension and debarment is to visit and print out a copy of the results and keep it in the contract file.

The following agencies received audit findings on the subject.  Click on the name of the agency to read the actual audit finding:
