In the face of rising uncertainty over data security and surveillance by foreign adversaries, the FAR Council released an interim final rule on August 13, 2019, banning Federal agencies from purchasing telecommunications and video surveillance equipment or services from certain Chinese entities. This “Phase One” rule implements paragraph (a)(1)(A) of Section 889 of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019.

In their recent article published in PSC's Service Contractor magazine, Leo Alvarez and Jeff Clayton weigh in on what government contractors should be considering in advance of Phase Two of the Section 889 Implementation.
