On May 22, AGC submitted comments to the Department of Defense (DOD) request for input regarding draft guidance for contractor reimbursement under Section 3610 of the CARES Act. Among AGC's concerns with the draft guidance is the potential for the government to double dip into contractor pockets by both receiving credits cost-reimbursement and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans that are not forgiven. Additionally, the guidance fails to address that not all forgiven PPP loan amounts are applicable to paid-leave costs expended on employees dedicated to performing certain federal contracts. AGC continues to call on Congress to support compensation for all federal contractors during the COVID-19 outbreak. AGC will continue to work with DOD as they issue further guidance on this matter.
