(Update) Vaccine update Refresh 9

When GSA announced the modification, the summary did not include the updates to the Executive Order 14042 regarding vaccine mandates and safety protocols. We provided a detailed overview of the Executive Order 14042 and how it affects contractors, in a previous post. 

The updated Solicitation includes wording from the Safer Federal Workforce website about how the executive order will be followed. Due to the pending lawsuits against the mandate, the Government will take no action to enforce FAR 52.223-99 or the Executive Order 14042 without written notice from the agency. Currently all fifty states and its’ outlying areas are included; however, the Safer Federal Workforce is updating their list frequently. Please check their website for the most up to date list.
