Federal Contractors Bear Brunt Of 'Buy American' Crackdown

April 18, 2017, Law360

Fred Levy is quoted in a Law360 article regarding the effect of President Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” Executive Order on federal contractors. Commenting on supply-chain adjustments made to items from overseas, Levy says, “If they change the Buy American Act to flow those requirements all the way back down again so it’s not just components, but any subcomponents, that would wreak havoc on industry, I think — we’d have part shortages and we’d have price increases.”

Levy adds, “What I think might change is that with increased scrutiny, particularly within the whistleblower community, we might see an increase in investigations and actions. If you take a look at the False Claims Act statistics, the whistleblowers — qui tam relators — really drive the False Claims Act agenda.”
