| PSC Applauds Senate Passage of FY20 NDAA
“Congress has enacted an NDAA for 58 consecutive years and PSC is pleased that the Senate continues to prioritize this critical legislation,” said Alan Chvotkin, PSC Executive Vice President and Counsel. “This year’s bill includes a number of provisions that will enhance our national security, will modify the Defense Department’s procedures to improve acquisition outcomes, and make the department a smarter buyer.”
PSC applauded Senators for adding or strengthening provisions on security clearances procedures, sustainment reform, and industry communications included in the Manager’s Amendment; PSC successfully urged the Senate to reject amendments that would place unnecessary burdens on the federal contractor community.
The House Armed Services Committee approved its version of the NDAA on June 13 and the full House is expected to consider the bill after the July 4th recess.
“PSC looks forward to continuing to work with the House and Senate to ensure the final conference report recognizes the important contributions of federal contractors and promotes an effective, streamlined, and competitive federal contracting system,” Chvotkin continued.
