New Rule Increases Pressure On Homeland Security Contracts
Aug.14.2014 — Law360
Washington, D.C.-based Government Contacts Group partner, Peter Eyre, discusses the expanded authority of the Defense Priorities and Allocations System (DPAS) and how it will effect various companies and agencies, especially the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and its contractors. "Contractors and subcontractors that traditionally haven't dealt with rated orders are more likely to see them because of this expansion. Companies will need to become familiar with these obligations," Eyre said. "And I suspect that civilian agencies — especially DHS — are going to be figuring out how to use the expanded coverage and authority."
