A. Initiation. After consultation with the affected using department, the Borough Attorney, and, where practicable, the contractor or prospective contractor who is to be suspended, and upon written determination by the Chief Procurement Officer that probable cause exists for debarment, a contractor or prospective contractor shall be suspended. A notice of suspension, including a copy of such determination, shall be sent to the suspended contractor or prospective contractor. Such notice shall state that:

1. The suspension is for the period it takes to complete an investigation into possible debarment but not for a period in excess of 90 days;

2. Bids or proposals will not be solicited from the suspended person, and if they are received, will not be considered during the period of suspension; and

3. If a hearing has not been held, the suspended person may request a hearing in accordance with FNSBC 16.36.040.

B. Effect of Decision. A contractor or prospective contractor is suspended upon issuance of the notice of suspension. The suspension shall remain in effect until ended by the Chief Procurement Officer or by a court, but otherwise shall be ended only when the suspension has been in effect for 90 days or a debarment decision takes effect.
