DARS may temporarily suspend a contract provider from providing services for reasons such as

  • suspected fraud,
  • consumer abuse, and
  • failure to perform services according to the specifications and terms of the contract.

Depending on the nature of the noncompliance, DARS may require the contract provider to return to compliance before providing further services.

DARS may take further adverse action in conjunction with or instead of requesting a corrective action plan. In serious noncompliance situations, DARS may terminate a contract or debar a provider from future DARS service contracts without allowing the provider to take corrective action.
