OMB and CISA Issue New Guidelines Addressing Coronavirus Impacts on Federal Contractors

Posted on Mar 24, 2020 by
NECA has advocated before the White House and the Congress to encourage the use of flexible work solutions electrical contractors, where possible. We have also asked that the federal government provide guidance to federal contracting officers regarding equitable adjustments for contractors unable to access the federal facility required to perform their duties. On March 20, 2020, OMB issued such guidance (No. M-20-18) to heads of executive departments and agencies. Although the guidance is general in nature, it calls on decisions to be made on a case-by case basis, and is not mandatory. However, it does encourages agency flexibility in dealing with contractors affected by COVID-19.
