Retailer Sanctions – Debarment of Disqualified Firms

This policy memorandum provides guidance regarding the criteria for initiating government-wide debarment actions against retail firms that have been disqualified from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This memorandum also addresses what actions the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) should take if an authorized or applying retail firm or any of its owners are found to have been debarred from non-procurement programs and activities by another Federal agency in accordance with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidelines as found in 2 CFR Parts 180 and 417.

It subsequently came to our attention that some States were not clear that upon its effective date, Federal law takes precedence and States were expected to implement the new Federal trafficking definition.
