Omnibus Appropriations Bill Focuses on Geospatial Contracting

Posted By Administration, Friday, January 8, 2016
MAPPS Government Affairs Manager John "JB" Byrd has prepared a summary of key provisions in the Fiscal Year 2016 “omnibus” appropriations bill. Public Law 114-113 was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama on December 18 to fund and keep the government running through September 30. This summary focuses on particular areas of interest in geospatial, including surveying and mapping; architecture & engineering; procurement, privatization and contracting out; and government reform. All subdivisions of the House-Senate conference agreements are on the House Rules Committee website. The respective House and Senate Appropriations Committee reports should also be reviewed when researching budgets and program provisions, as items included or discussed therein could provide guidance that agencies will follow in FY16 implementation.
