Under Presidential Executive Order 12549 and Executive Order 12689, The University of Texas at Austin may not contract with parties listed on the General Services Administration's System for Award Management (SAM). SAM identifies (via active exclusions) entities that have been debarred, suspended, or excluded from receiving federal contracts, subcontracts, or federal assistance and benefits.

In compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Section 180.300, the university includes suspension/debarment provisions in its purchase orders. By accepting the university’s purchase order, the supplier is certifying that, to the best of its knowledge, the supplier and/or any of its principals are not suspended or debarred.
