Extends through 2024 the authority for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to waive requirements of the Federal Acquisition Regulation, the procedures that guide federal procurement actions, for certain research and development and prototype projects. The authority, known as “Other Transaction Authority,” helps DHS work with organizations that have not previously contracted with the federal government. The agency uses the authority to participate in research that broadens its knowledge base and to develop prototypes of emerging technologies. Under current law, the authority expires at the end of fiscal year 2022.
