PROJECT 38: How the ban on Chinese tech impacts GovCon

Defense policy expert and attorney Samantha Clark explains the far ranging implications of a new rule that bans agencies from awarding contracts to companies using or selling telecommunications equipment from certain China based companies

Clark, special counsel at law firm Covington and Burling, talks with senior staff writer Ross Wilkers to help understand what this new rule means and how government contractors are making sense out of it in this episode of Project 38.

A former Senate Armed Services Committee staffer, Clark was a key player in driving the annual passage of the National Defense Authorization Act and this new rule stems from the 2019 edition of the NDAA.

Much is still to be determined given how the so-called Section 889 provision is still fresh, but Clark explains how the rule came to be and how GovCon companies will adjust to its implementation.
