Suspension & Debarment

Suspension & Debarment

Businesses that violate state laws or contractual obligations may be blocked from doing business with King County for up to two years. They can neither enter into a contract with King County nor can they work as a subcontractor or subconsultant on a contract with King County.

If there are reasonable grounds to block a business from doing business with King County, the County Executive may suspend a business for up to six months while the case is evaluated by the Debarment Committee. This committee will hold hearings to determine if the business should be debarred. Debarment can last up to two years.

A full description of King County policies and laws regarding suspension and debarment can be found under CON-7-20 (PR) and K.C.C. 2.93.170.
