Office of Inspector General (OIG) and General Services Administration (GSA) Exclusion Lists
As an organization with federal contracts, our Company, along with first tier, downstream and related entities (FDRs), is prohibited from conducting business with anyone who has been debarred, excluded or are otherwise ineligible to participate in federal programs. Therefore, the appropriate federal screening is required.
Entities and individuals should be screened against the Office of Inspector General (OIG) List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) and the General Services Administration (GSA) Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) prior to hiring or contracting and monthly thereafter. FDRs may use the links below to access the exclusion databases to meet this requirement. FDRs must also notify our Company immediately if someone is found to have been debarred or excluded. Medicare payment may not be made for items or services furnished or prescribed by an excluded provider or entity.
