8 208.25 Reference to the contents of

the list. The Administrator may take such action as he deems appropriate to direct the contents of the list to the attention of parties to A.I.D.-financed transactions. For this purpose the Administrator may direct that reference be made to the list or to any of its contents in any A.I.D. implementing document.

(2) The second section shall declare A.I.D.'s intention to keep the contents of the List current by additions and deletions, and that no prejudice whatsoever attaches to a supplier whose name has been removed from this list.

(3) The third section shall list debarred persons.

(4) The fourth section shall list suspended persons.

(b) Information concerning ineligible suppliers. (1) The supplier shall be described on the List of Ineligible Suppliers by name, address and type of commodity or service supplied. (Names shall be set forth in alphabetical order with appropriate cross-reference where more than one name is involved in a single action.)

(2) If a supplier engages in several activities or supplies several commodities and the suspension or debarment does not apply to the full range of the supplier's operations, the list shall clearly indicate the limited application of the sanction.

(3) With respect to any debarred supplier, the expiration date of such debarment shall be clearly indicated.

8 208.26 Removal of ineligibility by the

Administrator. (a) The Administrator may remove the name of any supplier from the list of Ineligible Suppliers before the stated debarment period whenever the Administrator is reasonably satisfied that such action will not compromise the integrity of the Foreign Assistance Program or militate against the prudent use of Foreign Assistance Funds.

(b) A debarred supplier may at any time apply to the Administrator in writing for removal from the list and may set forth facts in support of such action.
