DOD, GSA, and NASA issue final rule to amend FAR provisions, determining compliance with INA.
DOD, GSA, and NASA have issued a final rule to amend the FAR provisions regarding the determining official for compliance with the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Specifically, the rule adds the secretary of homeland security, in addition to the attorney general, as the parties with the authority to determine that a contractor is not in compliance with the INA. Additionally, the rule allows debarring officials to base a debarment decision on such a determination by either the attorney general or the secretary of homeland security. This rule became effective on June 18, 2004. (69 Fed. Reg. 34230, 6/18/04)
