The Department of Justice is finalizing without change the interim final rule with request for comments published at 68 FR 66534, on November 26, 2003. The interim final rule implemented changes to the government-wide nonprocurement debarment and suspension common rule (NCR) and the associated rule on drug-free workplace requirements. The NCR sets forth the common policies and procedures that Federal Executive branch agencies must use in taking suspension or debarment actions. It also establishes procedures for participants and Federal agencies in entering covered transactions.
