Agencies Initiate Emergency Acquisition Authorities
Government Contracts Attorney Eric Crusius was cited in a recent Federal News Network article regarding the implementation of emergency acquisition authorities to make it easier to award contracts to support coronavirus relief efforts. The article focuses on several agencies that raised their thresholds for purchases made in the U.S.
“The government is responding pretty quickly to the requirements that folks have,” Mr. Crusius said. “Those are substantial raises of those limits and reflect the fact that government is trying to buy goods and services very quickly and with minimal heartache.”
