(c) Shared facilities and equipment;
(d) Common use of employees; or
(e) A business entity organized following the debarment or proposed debarment of a person which has the same or similar management, ownership, or employees as the person that was debarred or proposed for debarment.

(b) Any other resolution that is the functional equivalent of a judgment, including probation before judgment and deferred prosecution. A disposition without the participation of the court is the functional equivalent of a judgment only if it includes an admission of guilt.

(4) "Debarring official" means the director of the department of enterprise services or the director's designee, who shall exercise the authority to debar or fine in lieu of debarment.
(5) "Fine in lieu of debarment" means an alternative to debarment, for certain causes that otherwise could result in debarment, but for which a monetary penalty, under the circumstances, may be more appropriate than debarment.
