New changes to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement rules for contractor business systems are now in effect.
Under the new rules, the government can withhold 5 percent of a contractor’s payment if any of the company’s business systems are found to be “deficient” by the Defense Contract Audit Agency.
Brian Waagner, a partner at Husch Blackwell, wrote about the changes and what they mean for contractors in a post on Contractor Perspective.
Waagner joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the DFARS revisions and, in particular, six changes contractors need to know about.
