DoD is dragging its feet on following the law and it could be a national security issue

November 28, 2018, Federal News Network

Scott Freling and Justin Ganderson are quoted in Federal News Network regarding the implementation of 2017 Department of Defense legislation. Mr. Freling says, “The process for updating and refining the acquisition regulation to keep pace with Congress has slowed to a glacial pace. That causes quite a bit of consternation for contractors we work with where there’s changes that Congress has made to the procurement rules that aren’t yet reflected in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) or in the Defense FAR supplement. That uncertainty has been a source of concern by many clients where they are left in a state of wondering where they can avail themselves of the new rules or whether they have to wait until the FAR Council acts.”

 

Mr. Ganderson says, “The expansion of the NTIB allows the United States government to leverage the resources in these countries.” He adds, it will “enhance the U.S. manufacturing and industrial base capabilities, especially in the event there is a conflict in the world. The NTIB has been described as a highly integrated defense industrial cooperation.”
