About This Report

In response to significant national security concerns, Section 889 of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) includes two prohibitions that apply to all Federal acquisition. 

The first prohibition (Part A), which went into effect on August 13, 2019, prohibits the Federal Government (the Government) from purchasing telecommunications and video surveillance equipment or services manufactured or provided by five named companies and their subsidiaries or affiliates (prohibited telecom).

The five named companies are:

  • Huawei Technologies Company; 
  • ZTE Corporation; 
  • Hytera Communications Corporation; 
  • Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Company; and 
  • Dahua Technology Company. 

The second, broader prohibition (Part B), which took effect on August 13, 2020, prohibits the Government from entering into a contract (or extending or renewing a contract) with companies that use any equipment, system, or service that uses prohibited telecom as a substantial or essential component of any system, or as critical technology as part of any system, unless a waiver is obtained or an exception applies. The FAR rule, published on July 14, 2020, and effective on August 13, 2020, amended the FAR to implement this second prohibition.

The Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) is here to help our customer agencies with Section 889 implementation.  The Part B FAR rule, published on July 14, 2020, requires FAR clause 52.204-25 (AUG 2020) be added to all indefinite delivery acquisition vehicles prior to order placement unless your agency policy specifies otherwise or a waiver is obtained.  FAS is actively modifying FAS managed indefinite delivery acquisition vehicles to include FAR clause 52.204-25 (AUG 2020).  

To aid our customer agencies in identifying which FAS indefinite delivery acquisition vehicle contracts have been modified to include FAR clause 52.204-25 (AUG 2020), this 889 Part B Modification Status Tracker provides users with a registry of FAS managed acquisition vehicles such as Multiple Award Schedules, Government-wide Acquisition Contracts and Multiple Award Contracts along with the current 889 Part B FAR clause 52.203-25 (AUG 2020) modification status (Accepted, Declined, Waiver Approved, or Pending). Additional contract attributes available in the dashboard include Contractor Name, Business Size, Contract Vehicle, and DUNS.

*For ordering contracting officers, prior to placing an order against a FAS managed indefinite delivery acquisition vehicle, please ensure that the contract is modified to include FAR clause 52.204-25 (AUG 2020) and that you obtain representation provision FAR 52.204-24 (AUG 2020) in the solicitation unless their agency policy specifies otherwise or a waiver is obtained.

**GSA did not require existing indefinite delivery vehicle (IDV) contractors awarded before August 13, 2020 to complete FAR representation provision 52.204-24 (AUG 2020) (which requires the offeror to represent if it does or does not use covered telecom). On October 26, 2020, the FAR rule implementing the updated SAM reporting provision 52.204-26 will be in effect, and agencies will be able to check SAM to see if Schedule contractors have completed the Part B representation in SAM.  If your agency policy requires you to get representation equivalent to that required at FAR 52.204-24(d)(2), please contact the vendor directly.
