Notice ID: 15PBJA23N00000004
The United States Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance is seeking support services for the operation of two (2) statutory debarment programs known as the Denial of Federal Benefits Program and the Defense Procurement Fraud Debarment (DPFD) Clearinghouse Program functions. These support services include the maintenance of hardcopy and electronic database files and performance of helpdesk functions
BJA is seeking contractor support for receiving, verifying, and responding to inquiries for the case information about debarments under both the DFB and DPFD Programs. Information received in connection with the DFB Program comes from federal and state courts. Online reporting is available and is to be encouraged, but some of the information is received via fax (or other means) and needs to be entered manually into the debarment database. Information received in connection with the DPFD Program comes from DOJ litigating divisions and needs to be entered manually into the debarment database. Because the DFB Program serves as an information clearinghouse, in addition to serving as a central repository, its information regarding individuals for whom benefits are denied needs to be forwarded electronically to the General Services Administration (GSA) for inclusion in the publication "Lists of Parties Excluded from Federal Procurement or Non-procurement Programs," more commonly known as the "Debarment List," so that it is available to be consulted by federal agencies before making awards or grants of federal funds consistent with law. The DPFD Program also serves as an information clearinghouse, in addition to serving as a central repository. Its information regarding individuals who are debarred needs to be forwarded to GSA for inclusion on the Debarment List. Each federal agency consults the Debarment List to ensure ongoing statutory compliance. Although information for both DFB and DPFD Programs is forwarded to GSA for inclusion on the Debarment List, verification requests sometimes need to be handled directly by the contractor. For example, mortgage companies or prospective employers may seek verification as to a particular individual. In addition, as individuals satisfy their sentences, or for other reasons require removal from the debarment database, the contractor is expected to handle those.
