Modified E-Verify/Basic Pilot Mandate Suspended Again Until September

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

(American Meat Institute)

The applicability date of Federal Acquisition Regulatory (FAR) Case 2007-013, Employment Eligibility Verification, has been suspended once again, so that the new Administration may have more time to complete its review of this rule.

Under the new applicability date, which is expected to appear this week in the Federal Register, any solicitations that occur prior to September 8, 2009, would not contain the contract clauses that the rule would impose. The rule would require most federal contractors and subcontractors to use a modified version of the EVerify/ Basic Pilot program—requiring reverification of the workforce and creating vicarious liability for subcontractors.
