STATE RIN: 1400-AF09 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Department of State Acquisition Regulations: Name Check Vetting in Contracts and Grants 

The Department of State has identified name check vetting as a critical tool that can be used, where appropriate, to mitigate the risk that U.S. government activities could inadvertently benefit terrorist groups, their members, or their supporters. The Department contemplates proposed rules that will address the Department’s name check vetting process, including setting out the requirements for including vetting provisions in Department of State solicitations and awards for both grants and contracts to allow for name check vetting of key individuals of implementing partners and sub-contractors or sub-grantees, beneficiaries of programs, or other identified categories of individuals, when deemed appropriate by the relevant Department official. To that end, the Department is publishing an ANPRM to solicit information from the public about this proposal.
