Creation of Federal Supply Chain Council Means Tougher Standards for Contractors, Federal Drive with Tom Temin

Jenner & Block Partner Cynthia J. Robertson joined Federal News Network radio show "Federal Drive with Tom Temin" to talk about how the creation of a federal supply chain council could mean tougher standards for contractors. In the interview, Ms. Robertson discusses recent product bans from the federal supply chain that have imposed quite a lot of burden on federal contractors and their supply chain. She also urges federal contractors to weigh in on the new rule to ensure there are safeguards in place to lessen their chances of being reviewed by the proposed interagency council. “I think what we could anticipate is that this new committee would issue very similar exclusion orders to those we’ve seen in the past that are likewise broad in scope, and very burdensome,” she said.
