45 CFR 1606.3 - Grounds for a termination.

§ 1606.3 Grounds for a termination.
(a) A grant or contract may be terminated when:
(1) There has been a substantial violation by the recipient of a provision of the LSC Act, the Corporation's appropriations act or other law applicable to LSC funds, or Corporation rule, regulation, guideline or instruction, or a term or condition of the recipient's grant or contract, and the violation occurred less than 5 years prior to the date the recipient receives notice of the violation pursuant to § 1606.6(a); or
(2) There has been a substantial failure by the recipient to provide high quality, economical, and effective legal assistance, as measured by generally accepted professional standards, the provisions of the LSC Act, or a rule, regulation, including 45 CFR 1634.9(a)(2), or guidance issued by the Corporation.
(b) A determination of whether there has been a substantial violation for the purposes of paragraph (a)(1) of this section will be based on consideration of the following criteria:
(1) The number of restrictions or requirements violated;
(2) Whether the violation represents an instance of noncompliance with a substantive statutory or regulatory restriction or requirement, rather than an instance of noncompliance with a non-substantive technical or procedural requirement;
(3) The extent to which the violation is part of a pattern of noncompliance with LSC requirements or restrictions;
(4) The extent to which the recipient failed to take action to cure the violation when it became aware of the violation; and
(5) Whether the violation was knowing and willful.
