sanction that was imposed by a Federal, State, or local government agency, including
any administrative agreement that purports to affect only a single agency; and
(2) Any current or prior criminal or civil legal proceeding that was based on the same
facts as the penalties and assessments proposed by OPM.
(c) In-person appearance. A provider may request a personal appearance (in person, by telephone conference,
or through a representative) to provide testimony and oral arguments to the debarring
