SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background: Section 889(a)(1)(B) of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 (Pub. L. 115-232) prohibits contracting with entities that use certain telecommunications and video surveillance services or equipment. This bulletin makes Federal agencies aware of this prohibition and recommends that agencies establish policies that facilitate compliance when a Government-issued fleet charge card is used to acquire fuel or maintenance services for Government motor vehicles.

This bulletin also recommends policies and practices agencies and charge card users may implement to lessen the security risks associated with fleet charge card transactions.
