FEATURE COMMENT: The Impact Of The National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2014 On Federal Procurement (The Government Contractor)

    View Author 18 February 2014

    In 2013, two National Defense Authorization Acts were enacted. First, on January 2, President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013. See P.L. 112-239. Subsequently, on December 26, the president signed into law the FY 2014 NDAA. See P.L. 113-66. Unfortunately, the fact that two NDAAs were passed in one year is not a sign of legislative progress or increased cooperation between the legislative and executive branches. Instead, both acts were delayed and enacted approximately three months after the start of their respective fiscal years.
