The 2018 NDAA - How Will It Impact Government Contractors?

This event has already occurred.

Event Overview

On December 12, 2017, the President signed the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (Public Law 115-91). While the law authorizes $613.8 billion base funding for the Department of Defense, the law also contains many new provisions that will affect contractors and subcontractors.

Please join DHG's Bill Walter and his guests, Edmund Amorosi and Stephen Knight of Smith Pachter McWhorter, as they discuss some of the elements that will impact how you do business with the DoD in the next few years. Some of the topics will include:

  • New cost burdens imposed on contractor bid protests
  • Continued emphasis on commercial item contracting
  • Increasing the thresholds for Simplified Acquisitions and the Truth in Negotiations Act for the Department of Defense
  • Moving 25% of DCAA incurred cost audits to the private sector
  • Additional reporting of DCAA results to Congress
  • Additional requirements for STTR and SBIR programs
