E-Verify Rule Postponed Again

Monday, April 20, 2009

Comment | More

The Obama administration has again postponed implementation of the federal E-Verify rule, which will require federal contractors and subcontractors to use the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ E-Verify system. The new deadline is June 30.

The Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense Acquisition Regulations Council (collectively known as the Federal Acquisitions Regulatory Councils) have postponed the applicability of the final rule, to provide the administration more time to review it.

On June 6, 2008, President Bush issued an executive order directing federal agencies to require federal contractors to agree to electronically verify their employees' eligibility to work legally in the United States, and a final rule implementing the order was issued Nov. 14, 2008, with an effective date of Jan. 15, 2009. The final rule clarified Bush's executive order and set forth guidelines regarding which companies are covered and how they should comply.

The rule applies only to federal contracts awarded or amended after Jan. 15, 2009, that meet the simplified acquisition threshold of $100,000. Subcontractors that flow from the direct contract are also covered by this requirement.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business groups sued to block the rule, and the government announced Jan. 9 that it would postpone implementation until May 21. This week’s announcement adds six additional weeks to that deadline.
