To protect the government's interests, any agency can exclude (i.e., debar or suspend) parties from receiving federal contracts or assistance for a range of offenses.

Recent allegations indicate that excluded parties have been able to receive federal contracts. This report: (1) determines whether these allegations could be substantiated; and (2) to identify the key causes of any improper awards and other payments detected. The auditor investi

Data in the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) was insufficient to enable govżt. agencies to determine with confidence that a prospective vendor was not currently excluded. In response, agencies had to enter a DUNS number to facilitate the ident. of excluded parties.

Under the Superfund program, the EPA places the most seriously contaminated sites on the National Priorities List. EPA may compel site cleanups by parties responsible for contamination, or conduct cleanups itself and have these parties reimburse its costs. The program is funded by a trust fund, which is largely supported by general fund appropriations. This report examines: (1) EPA's enforcement action outcomes and the factors parties consider in reaching these outcomes; (2) any trends in litigation to resolve Superfund liability; and (3) the program's status and costs. The report obtained and

Hydro resources are provided by nature. The exploitation of such resources can generate significant economic rent to the owners. In the past, governments have usually claimed ownership of hydroelectric resources and passed on the rents to their state-owned utilities, which have used them to expand their systems or provide lower tariffs to their consumers. With the restructuring of the electric power sector in many countries, a more explicit consideration of hydroelectric rents is required. Moreover, hydropower resources are often owned by more than one party, or at least require cooperation be
