Congress Extends GAO's Task Order Jurisdiction

January 12, 2011

On January 7, 2011, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011, which, among other things, extends GAO’s protest jurisdiction over certain task and delivery orders through September 30, 2016.  That jurisdiction (which would have expired on May 27, 2011, without congressional action) allows GAO to hear protests of orders in excess of $10 million.
