Hua-what? The Huawei Ban
Presented by Mara Ash, CIA, CGAP, CGFM, CMRA
BFS Strategic Partners




Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act is a significant change to Federal procurement, and it impacts almost every contractor doing business with the Government. The provision bans government contractors from using technology and services tied to Chinese equipment manufacturers that have been deemed cybersecurity threats by the U.S. government. The companies affected by the legislation are Huawei, ZTE, Hytera, Hikvision, and Dahua and their subsidiaries. The National Defense Authorization Act was put into place to prevent cyber-attacks and efforts to exfiltrate information and intellectual property by foreign adversaries which pose risks for the U.S. government and industry.
 
This course will provide the participant with the needed know-how on section 889 of the National Defense Authorization Act and how it effects any kind of procurement opportunity with the government. In the course the affects of section 889 will be investigated both from a government agency POV and a Government contractor POV. 

Learning Objectives:

  • What are the requirements of 889?

  • What were the impacts of section 889 for the recipients of federal funds?

  • What do we do if we use those banned systems?

Pandemic Relief Part Trois: CARES, CAA, and Now the American Rescue Plan
Presented by Carla Crowe, Jonathan Dunn, and Eric Russell, CIA, CGAP, CGMS, MPA
Crowe LLP




Breaking News!  Read all about it!  As you may know, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (“ARPA”) was signed into law on March 11, 2021.  The Act provides more than $1 trillion in funding to stimulate the economy and assist with COVID-19 relief, including through new and pre-existing programs.  A significant amount of funds are required to be disbursed to governments within 60 days of the law’s passage, and others are expected to flow shortly thereafter.  During this session, we will discuss key funding aspects of the legislation, specific areas of risk of noncompliance, interactions with funding streams authorized under the CARES Act and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, and best practices to consider as your organization plans to receive, disburse, and manage both funding and performance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify key funding streams and programs included within the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (“ARPA”)

  • Discuss implementation risks, including financial, compliance, and reputational risks

  • Navigate to the legislation and locate appropriations and funding applicable to specific industries and organization types

  • Discuss best practices in grants coordination and administration in preparation for receipt of ARPA funds
