Government Contracts: Regulatory Trends, Challenges, and Key Considerations
Significant regulatory and legislative developments continue to reshape the compliance landscape for government contracting. One of the biggest updates is the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework which requires the US Department of Defense (DoD) contractors to obtain cybersecurity certification from third-party assessment organizations. Other critical issues that contractors and practitioners should keep an eye on include the final rule for Small-Business Runway Extension Act and the new counterfeit reporting rule from the Federal Acquisition Regulatory (FAR) Council.
As new legislative, regulatory, and guidance actions develop, contractors need to ensure that their compliance programs cope with the current and emerging challenges.
