Event Summary

Each year the National Defense Authorization Act is rife with tweaks big and small that impact government contractors and how they do business with their defense customers and beyond.

The 2019 version of the NDAA is no different. There are things the contractor community likes but there also are areas that will raise concerns.

In our Washington Technology event we’ll hear from the experts who understand the NDAA and what contractors need to understand as it moves from a law into regulations, policies and guidances.

Our speakers will provide a detailed look at what the new LPTA requirements are and how they affect services contracts. Other hot button issues include expedited payments to small businesses as well as new requirements involving past performance of subcontractors and joint venture partners.

We’ll also explore issues that will likely come up as Congress works on the 2020 NDAA. Congress is still asking for reports about bid protests and long term sustainment of systems as well as reports on cloud computing and cyber-enabled operations.

The law wants reports on acquisition programs and initiatives, particularly those involving business systems, networks and software-intensive systems.

But the question we’ll answer is how will the provisions of the NDAA impact your business and how soon will that impact be felt.

The NDAA is too big to ignore.
