Contractors seek supply chain clarity ahead of full federal ban on Huawei, ZTE

The 2019 NDAA forbids federal agencies from doing work with any contractor that has supply chain ties to some Chinese-based companies, like Huawei, ZTE and others. But contractors aren't sure exactly what that defines. A range of industry and legal experts representing large and small telecom, IT, cybersecurity, real estate, and construction companies met with GSA officials Wednesday to express their concerns with the forthcoming ban. The big message was that they want GSA to provide a better definition of what products are covered, a good list of covered subsidiaries and affiliates, and compliance program standards.

Library of Congress says it has ‘significantly improved’ IT

The Library of Congress has made important strides shoring up its IT environment in recent years. Librarian Carla Hayden said during a Senate hearing Thursday that her organization has “significantly improved” its situation since a 2015 Government Accountability Office audit called out “significant weaknesses” in the library’s IT management. To date, Hayden said, the library has closed “nearly 95%” of the GAO’s recommendations. It intends to close out the remaining percentage by the end of this fiscal year. “The library is a different organization from what it was just a short time ago,” Hayden said.

The trend is “troubling,” said OPM Director Dale Cabaniss. “I believe that the agencies that are most successful are those who use the data as starting points for analysis and action. It’s not about seeing percentages move but creating a more conducive environment for employment.” Dave has this one too.
