White House Expands Dahua Hikvision Blacklist To Federal Funding [Final Rule Reverses]

By: Charles Rollet, Published on Aug 13, 2020

The White House is expanding the NDAA to blacklist anyone who "uses" banned Hikvision/Dahua/Huawei HiSilicon equipment from participating in any federally-funded contracts, regardless of whether the contract involves banned equipment and regardless of the entity spending the federal funds, IPVM has verified in a new government disclosure.

UPDATE 8/14: the final rule has now been published and it does not expand the Hikvision/Dahua blacklist, in a reversal from what the White House stated yesterday and proposed back in January. What the new rule does do is prohibit federal funds from being spent on covered services and equipment, but not entities that "use" Hikuawei gear. For more info and examples read out latest post: Final Rule Does Not Expand Hikvision Dahua Blacklist

This means any company that "uses" Hikvision equipment or services cannot participate in any federally-funded contract, even a FEMA grant for a church to buy shovels. Additionally, any "video surveillance costs associated" with this new rule are "unallowable", meaning the federal government will not cover anyone's compliance costs.

This expansion of the blacklist clause, first proposed in January 2020, is representative of the Trump administration's tough and expansive implementation of the NDAA ban. In this post, we examine this development and discuss examples of its impacts.
