07.23.2020

Miller & Chevalier and Dixon Hughes Goodman will present the upcoming government contracts webinar, "Reasonable Inquiry in Unreasonable Time – Determining Your Obligations Under Section 889(a)(1)(B)," on Thursday, July 23, 2020.

On August 13, a new FAR Interim Rule will require all offerors to represent whether or not they "use any equipment, system, or services that uses" Huawei Technology Company, ZTE Corporation, or other Chinese-made telecommunications equipment or services, after conducting a "reasonable inquiry." Bill Walter and Gary McDonald, Dixon Hughes Goodman, and Alex Sarria and Jason Workmaster from Miller & Chevalier will discuss the impact of this rule on government contractors and address topics including:

  • What is included in the 15-page Interim Rule?
  • What "entities" are required to comply?
  • What is a "reasonable inquiry"?
  • What constitutes a prohibited "use" of banned technologies?
  • Who will pay for the costs associated with conducting a "reasonable inquiry"?
  • What are the consequences of noncompliance?
