    The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019, 
Title VII, Section 889, Prohibition on certain telecommunications and 
video surveillance services or equipment, identifies sources of 
``covered telecommunications equipment or services'' and, in paragraph

executive agency may not enter into a contract (or extend or renew a 
contract) with an entity that uses any equipment, system, or service 
that uses covered telecommunications equipment or services as a 
substantial or essential component of any system, or as critical 
technology as part of any system.''
    GSA is seeking to build industry awareness of this statutory 
language and hear different perspectives on the business impact on GSA
