FY2013 NDAA Approved by HASC with Amendments to Sec 818 of the FY2012 NDAA

HR 4310 as approved by HASC includes amendments to Section 818 of the FY 2012 NDAA…

Log 100 – This amendment would direct the SecDef to assess risks associated with obsolete or obsolescent electronic parts, and counterfeits thereof, to the defense supply chain and to brief the defense committees on findings and recommendations.

Log 101 – This amendment would create an exception for DOD contractors who take certain precautions for detecting and avoiding the use of counterfeit electronic parts.

(I paraphrase the amendment here)

Costs to remedy a counterfeit electronic part quality escape, including the cost of rework or corrective action, are not allowable costs under Department contracts, unless

1) contractor established a counterfeit avoidance/detection system approved by DoD,

2) the counterfeit parts were either procured from a trusted supplier or provided as government property per FAR Part 45, and

3) the contractor provides timely notice to the Government.

FY13 – Full Committee Mark – NDAA – National Defense Authorization Act – Armed Services Republicans.

“WASHINGTON- The House Armed Services Committee overwhelmingly approved HR 4310 the FY 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) ….”


UPDATE (5/14/2012) …
