Murray Comments on New Reporting Rule for Federal Contractors

22 November 2019 Law360 News

Partner Frank Murray was quoted in a Law360 article, “Contractors Exposed To Civil Suits Under New Reporting Rule,” about a new regulation requiring all federal contractors and subcontractors to report to a federal database certain parts that they believe are counterfeit or don’t conform to specifications.

 

While defense contractors enjoy protections laid out in an older regulation, Murray said, the expanded rule leaves other contractors open to liability.“Now if I’m providing an electronic part for the Department of Homeland Security or [General Services Administration] or something else, and I’m supposed to be reporting, I don’t have that safe harbor anymore,” he said.
