In early June the full Senate considered S. 2943, the FY 2917 National Defense Authorization Act. Included in the bill are a number of provisions of interest to ISOA members. Of particular note is Senator McCain’s effort to reform Department of Defense acquisition and contracting. While most of these proposals are aimed at major defense systems, there are provisions that will directly affect service providers. Of particular note are sections limiting the use of LPTA criteria and language regarding bid protest; as well as, Small Business contract requirements and the Committee initiative to consolidate all security cooperation authority into a single new authority under the Security Cooperation Enhancement Fund.
The ICoCA Board of Directors recognises that there are existing challenges associated with the current ICoCA certification procedure which have prevented some members or prospective members from obtaining ICoCA certification. There are many reasons for the current access limitations, including (but not limited to) the commercial markets and cost drivers in which certification bodies operate, travel and other logistical costs, language capacities, and perceptions (by PSCs and clients) of the relative value of certification.
