Government Contracts Partner Eric Crusius was cited in a Federal News Network article about a new rule from the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council that prohibits agencies from buying products or services from companies which use Huawei, ZTE or other prohibited products from Chinese companies.
“The regulation, which is just a month from implementation, will impact a wide swath of companies across the country because it includes readily available commercial items (commonly known as COTS items) and purchases of all values including those below the micro-purchase threshold,” said Mr. Crusius. “While there is no doubt that the government should and must protect itself from technologies that threaten national security, this rule will be a tremendous burden on companies across all sectors, including those that do not traditionally think of themselves as government contractors.”
