    Henry, Does that mean the ‘5 October ‘Open Cases Reports’ will be ‘Closed’ by then?

    • Based on what I hear from those I work with who are more knowledgable than I, it is most likely that one or more of these cases will be open for a while.

      Keep in mind that in addition to regulations that come out of the FAR and DFARS cases, we can expect to see implementation through other means, such as contract clauses.

      This ‘executive panel’ discussion should give us more insight into DoD’s overall implementation plan.
