Suspension and Debarment Monitoring

Affiliated Monitors provides solutions for government contractors who may be faced with government sanctions, such as suspension or debarment, by working with government agencies and the companies and professionals they license and regulate. The federal government, and many state agencies, use independent monitoring as an alternative resolution to contract compliance and ethics matters to help avoid more severe sanctions and allow continued government contracting with oversight by qualified, independent  monitoring professionals.

When Affiliated Monitors is selected as the independent monitor in government suspension and debarment matters, our professionals help the businesses identify and correct the deficiencies that led to sanctions, and provide specific recommendations for strengthened internal controls and improved corporate ethical culture. More importantly, Affiliated Monitors serves as a bridge between the company and the government to help rebuild any lost credibility and trust.  We work to ensure that improvements can be sustained, allowing businesses and government contractors to reestablish any public confidence that may have been diminished.
