cGovernment contractors should be aware of recent Department of Defense (DoD) rules governing Information Relating to Supply Chain Risk, 78 Fed. Register 69,268 (Nov. 18, 2013) and Unclassified Controlled Technical Information, 78 Fed. Register 69,273 (Nov. 18, 2013). The two key implications of the rules for Government Contractors are:
- Contractors may be removed from information technology procurements supporting national security systems for failure to satisfy standards related to supply chain risk, and in some cases they will be unable to protest their removal;
- Contractors must safeguard unclassified controlled technical information (UCTI) and take quick action to report and investigate “cyber incidents” having an actual or potential adverse effect on UCTI.
