We previously have blogged on this topic here, here, here, here, here, and here, noting developments both in terms of general, government-wide regulations through the FAR Council, and those specifically emanating from DoD. On December 31, 2019, DoD issued a Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) interim rule to further implement parts of the 2018 and 2019 National Defense Authorization Acts ("NDAA").
