Export-Import Bank of the United States Implementation of OMB Guidance on Nonprocurement Debarment and Suspension
The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) is establishing a new Part 3513 in 2 CFR that adopts the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB's) guidance in 2 CFR part 180, as supplemented by this new part, as Ex-Im Bank policies and procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension. Ex-Im Bank is also removing 12 CFR part 413, the part containing Ex-Im Bank's implementation of the government-wide common rule on nonprocurement debarment and suspension. 2 CFR part 3513 would serve the same purpose as the common rule in a simpler way. These changes constitute an administrative simplification that would make no substantive change in Ex-Im Bank policy or procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension.
