FAI, in collaboration with DAU, has developed a new training for the government-wide acquisition workforce on Section 889 of Public Law 115-232, “Prohibition on Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment”, Part B, which takes effect on August 13. The FAR Case 2019-009 rule prohibits the Government from contracting with an entity that uses certain telecommunications equipment or services produced by the entities listed in the statute. This online course summarizes information and resources to support the acquisition community in applying the new Section 889 regulation, and can be downloaded for you to review at your own pace. To take this course and receive 1 CLP, register for FAC 889, Section 889: Prohibition on Telecommunication and Video Equipment.
