The State Department stands out among agencies cracking down on bad contractors. In 2009, it took just eight suspension or debarment actions. Last year, it reported 96. Corey Rindner is the procurement executive and suspension and debarment official at the State Department. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss what debarment and suspension are and are not.
