Background ChecksWe discovered a version control issue where background checks did not reflect current procedure. Please ensure your background checks include the updated reference to sam.gov, which replaced the "GSA List" or "Excluded Participants List System (EPLS.gov)". You may include the following language:
"The primary source for checking government disbarment (formerly known as GSA List or EPLS) is the System for Award Management – sam.gov. In addition, check each investor or agency that provides an exclusionary list, such as FHLMC (through Loan Prospector) or FNMA EPLS."
Include this in the following modules:
- Vendor Management
Also, ensure that your checklists also include reference to this check.
- New Hire Checklist
- Vendor Application and Approval Worksheet
- Broker Approval
