(upbeat music) - Hello, and thank you for joining today's acquisition seminar hosted by the Federal Acquisition Institute. Today's seminar entitled Suspension and Debarment: What Makes a Successful Meeting will give us a glimpse into the minds of Suspension and Debarment Officials in the Federal Government, and a beind the closed door look at a successful meeting between a Suspension and Debarment Official and contractor representatives. Suspension and debarment, two terms that probably strike terror into the heart of any company or individual that wants to do business with the Federal Government. But suspension and debarment aren't meant to be punitive. And meetings with Suspension and Debarment Officials are not meant to be contentious or antagonistic. Suspension and debarment are used only as a last resort to protect the interests of the Federal Government. More often than not, a meeting with a Suspension and Debarment Official is an opportunity to help an individual or company get back on track. To enlighten us on the implications of suspension and debarment, we have a team of officials from agencies across the Federal Government. First we'll present two Suspension and Debarment Officials as they discuss, among other things, what they look for when they're determining a contractor's present responsibility and how members of the acquisition workforce can help. Then we'll present an example of a contractors meeting with a Suspension and Debarment Official. These closed door meetings have wide ranging effects on Federal Government procurement across all agencies. The meetings are necessarily private, but they are one of a Suspension and Debarment Official's most useful and effective tools for enhancing contractor responsibility. I think our presentations will help de-mistify suspension and debarment, and what officials are looking for when they meet with a contractor. And they'll shed light on what contractors can do to most effectively work with government to prevent exclusion. Before we begin, let me remind you that we will hold a live question and answer session at the end of today's presentation. If you have questions about anything you see or hear, we encourage you to submit them at any time using the survey link to the right of the video screen. We will collect and review your questions during the presentations, take a short break, and then we'll return to answer as many as we can. And with that, let's get started. I'm very pleased to introduce to you now, Maria Swaby, Suspension and Debarment Official for the U.S. General Services Administration and Rod Grandon, Suspension and Debarment Official for the U.S. Air Force. - Hello I'm Maria Swaby, the suspension and debarment official for the General Services Administration, and I'm here with Rod Grandon from the Air Force, and he's also the Air Force's Suspension and Debarment Official. Today we're going to have a conversation about suspension and debarment from the perspective of the...
