Excluded Parties List Verification
The Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) includes information regarding entities debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, excluded or disqualified under the nonprocurement common rule, or otherwise declared ineligible from receiving Federal contracts, certain subcontracts, and certain Federal assistance and benefits. This information may include names, addresses, DUNS numbers, Social Security Numbers, Employer Identification Numbers or other Taxpayer Identification Numbers, if available and deemed appropriate and permissible to publish by the agency taking the action. Please be aware that although GSA operates this system, individual agencies are responsible for the timely reporting, maintenance, and accuracy of their data.
The Office of Research uses the EPLS site as part of an internal risk assessment form to determine if subcontractors are debarred, suspended, or otherwise ineligible to receive federal funds.
