Procurement, Suspension and Debarment Requirements for Federal Grants
Carleton College is prohibited from contracting with or making sub awards under covered transactions to parties that are suspended or debarred or whose principals are suspended or debarred by the federal government. The College will assure compliance with this federal regulation with confirmation from the System for Award Management (SAM) (https://www.sam.gov). SAM will be checked before making a sub grant or contract award of any amount to an outside organization. Third party payments associated with federal grants will be reviewed against SAM prior to payment of $25,000.00 or more. The Business Office should be contacted before entering into a sub-award arrangement. A Vendor Selection Form is required to be submitted for equipment purchases of greater than $5,000.00 which will include the SAM check.
