Eric Crusius, partner at Holland & Knight, discusses important contracting takeaways from the NDAA and the government’s continuing efforts to build an e-commerce infrastructure.

The National Defense Authorization Act includes several provisions that govern how the Pentagon will do business in FY20, and contractors are combing through each of them. Elements of the bill are important for industry to understand, and make their Eric Crusius, partner, Holland & Knight, says that key parts of the bill concern use of technology and intellectual property.


“The Pentagon is taking a practical approach; ‘We want the IP that we absolutely need to perform the mission.’ That’s really important, because they are trying to get non-traditional contractors into the fold,” Crusius said. “The only way they are really going to do that is to keep their IP they develop without worrying that a competitor is going to swoop in and get access tp their IP. There’s a lot of that going on within the NDAA.”
