On February 5, 2013, Rep. Issa introduced the Stop Unworthy Spending (SUSPEND) Act–a discussion draft bill that proposes to overhaul the federal suspension & debarment system. The SUSPEND Act has triggered significant interest and debate within the procurement community. Indeed, last April, I co-authored a series with Lauren Youngman about the SUSPEND Act (see Part I, Part II, and Part III).
