"The Project Bio Shield Act of 2004 (ProjectBioShield; Public Law [P.L.] 108-276 (The PBS Act)) was designed to provide additional and more flexible authorities and funding to financially support the development and procurement of medical countermeasures against chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) threat agents. It was also designed to provide the government with the authority to quickly authorize their use during emergencies. PBS authorities were further delineated, clarified, and enhanced by the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act of 2006 (P.L. 109-417), the legislation that authorized the establishment of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA). The Project BioShield Act requires an annual report to describe use of specific provisions within the following authorities: [1] Research and Development of Qualified Medical Countermeasures [; 2] Security Countermeasure Procurements and Special Reserve Fund [; 3] Emergency Use Authorization for Medical Countermeasures"
