The proposed rules, which are contained within one rulemaking notice, address Section 8 of Executive Order 14005 [hyperlink], 'Ensuring the Future Is Made in All of America by All of America's Workers.' This Insight provides an overview of the four proposed rules, including one not mentioned specifically in the executive order, and briefly mentions the FAR Council's guidance regarding feedback on the proposed rules."
