Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 675, Never Contract With the Enemy Act   [open pdf - 20KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on May 21, 2014. From the Document: "S. 675 would require the Department of Defense (DoD) to identify entities that use resources received from the federal government to provide aid to a person or group that is actively opposing U.S. or allied armed forces in overseas contingency operations. The bill also would require DoD to identify entities that do not take sufficient care to ensure that government resources are not being used to support the enemy. The bill would require that contracts, grants, or cooperative agreements that are used or performed outside the United States and have a value of $50,000 or more include a clause giving federal agencies the right to examine the business records of the other party if the agency has reason to believe the recipient is supporting the enemy. […] CBO estimates that providing access to the list of enemy supporters and authorizing other federal agencies to cancel contracts and disbar contractors would have discretionary costs of less than $500,000 over the 2015-2019 period; any spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues."
