Subtitle EóOther Matters

P. L. 112-

House Conference Report 112-705

SEC. 863. EXTENSION OF OTHER TRANSACTION AUTHORITY.

Section 845(i) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1994 (10 U.S.C. 2371 note) is amended by striking `September 30, 2013' and inserting `September 30, 2018'.

 
Extension of other transaction authority (sec. 863)

The Senate amendment contained a provision (sec. 887) that would extend for 5 years the authority for the Secretary of Defense to carry out a pilot program for the acquisition of certain prototypes pursuant to `other transactions' under section 845 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1994 (Public Law 103-160).

The House bill contained no similar provision.

The House recedes.

The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to review the authority extended by this provision and make a recommendation as to whether the authority should be made permanent. The conferees expect the Secretary to ensure that applicable guidance provides appropriate safeguards against abuse before seeking permanent authority.
