Advocating for Managers in the Fiscal Year 2021 National Defense Authorization Act - July 8, 2020
This article originally ran in the July 7, 2020, issue of FEDManager.com.
One of the most critical bills the Federal Managers Association advocates on every year is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). First passed in 1961 – and consistently passed every year since – the NDAA is indispensable legislation that authorizes funding levels for the Department of Defense (DOD) and sets policies. The 116th Congress is in the middle of considering the Fiscal Year 2021 NDAA (S. 4049 / H.R. 6395), and FMA is once again scrutinizing the details of how the legislation would affect federal managers, if enacted. We are pleased that numerous FMA priorities are included in the current versions of the legislation.
