    (a) FINDINGS- The Congress finds as follows:

      (1) The Armed Forces of the United States, together with allied forces, have successfully liberated Kuwait and have restored the independence of that nation.

      (2) During the occupation of Kuwait by Iraq, much damage was done to the infrastructure, environment, and industrial capacity of Kuwait, and rebuilding of Kuwait is desperately needed.

      (3) The principal test of a nation’s commitment to the liberation of Kuwait in the Persian Gulf conflict was its willingness to provide military forces for the liberation of Kuwait.

      (4) United States firms, including small and minority-owned businesses, have expressed a significant interest in participating in the rebuilding of Kuwait.

      (5) Small and minority-owned businesses face inherent difficulties in competing in foreign markets and in obtaining a share of contracts from foreign governments, particularly those contracts that are performed in distant parts of the world.

    (b) SENSE OF CONGRESS CONCERNING SOURCE SELECTION FOR KUWAIT CONTRACTS- It is the sense of Congress that the Army Corps of Engineers and other Federal agencies should award contracts for the rebuilding of Kuwait, and, in recommending business firms to the Government of Kuwait for the award by it of such contracts, should encourage the Government of Kuwait to award such contracts, in accordance with the following priority:

      (1) First, to United States firms, including small and minority-owned businesses, that are committed to employing United States workers under the contract.

      (2) Second, to other United States firms.

    (d) SENSE OF CONGRESS CONCERNING EMPLOYEES UNDER KUWAIT REBUILDING CONTRACTS- It is the sense of Congress that any United States firm that receives a contract pertaining to the rebuilding of Kuwait--

      (1) should employ United States citizens to carry out the contract; and

      (2) should provide a preference to veterans of the Armed Forces in hiring for work on the contract.

    (e) SENSE OF CONGRESS CONCERNING SMALL AND MINORITY-OWNED BUSINESS PARTICIPATION IN KUWAIT REBUILDING CONTRACTS- It is the sense of Congress that--

      (1) the President, acting through the appropriate Government agencies (including particularly the agencies that will be engaged in source selections or source recommendations as described in subsection (b)), should take steps to provide assistance to United States small and minority-owned businesses seeking to be awarded contracts as part of the rebuilding of Kuwait;

      (2) the Administrator of the Small Business Administration and other appropriate Federal officials should conduct a public information campaign to advise small and minority-owned business firms with respect to contracts for the rebuilding of Kuwait; and

      (3) United States firms that are awarded contracts pertaining to the rebuilding of Kuwait should, to the maximum extent practicable, seek to award subcontracts for such contracts to United States small and minority-owned business firms.

    (f) PROGRESS REPORTS- (1) The President shall submit to Congress a report every four months with respect to contracting for the rebuilding of Kuwait. Each such report shall show, as of the submission of the report, the country of origin of all business firms awarded Kuwait rebuilding contracts by the Corps of Engineers and other Federal agencies and the country of origin of all business firms awarded subcontracts under such contracts and the other information specified in paragraphs (2) and (3).

    (2) The President shall include in each such report the same information (to the extent reasonably available) with regard to all business firms awarded Kuwait rebuilding contracts by the Government of Kuwait and all business firms that are subcontractors under those contracts. The President shall request the Government of Kuwait to provide to the United States, on an ongoing basis, information with respect to the country of origin of business firms to which it awards rebuilding contracts, the country of origin of firms awarded subcontracts under those contracts, and the information with respect to those contracts and subcontracts described in paragraph (3).

    (3)(A) Information in reports under paragraph (1) shall be shown by the number of firms from each such country and by the dollar value of contracts and subcontracts awarded to firms from each such country.

    (B) Each such report shall also show (to the extent reasonably available) the number and percentage of contractors that are small businesses, and the number and percentage that are minority-owned businesses, among the total number of contracts awarded to United States. Each such report shall also show (to the extent reasonably available), with respect to each contract awarded to a United States firm, the number and percentage of persons employed (or expected to be employed) under the contract who are United States citizens, the number and percentage of all persons so employed (or expected to be so employed) who are United States citizens and are veterans, and the number of subcontractors under the contract that are small businesses and the number that are minority-owned businesses.

    (4) The first report under paragraph (1) shall be submitted not later than two months after the date of the enactment of this Act. The last such report shall be submitted 36 months after the first report.

SEC. 607. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING USE OF UNITED STATES FUNDS FOR REBUILDING IRAQ

SEC. 609. RELIEF FROM REQUIREMENTS FOR REDUCTIONS IN DEFENSE ACQUISITION WORKFORCE DURING FISCAL YEAR 1991

    (a) The Secretary of Defense, in allocating to various installations and facilities the defense acquisition workforce reductions required for fiscal year 1991, should use the considerable flexibility concerning the manner in which those reductions are to be made that was provided to the Secretary by section 905 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1991 (Public Law 101-510; 104 Stat. 1621) in order to respond properly and efficiently to the influx of work expected to come into the defense acquisition system resulting from Operation Desert Storm.

    (b) The Secretary should allocate those reductions for fiscal year 1991 in a manner that ensures that any Department of Defense installation or facility that will experience a significant increase in workload during fiscal year 1991 (compared to its workload during fiscal year 1990) as a direct result of activities undertaken in support of Operation Desert Storm is not required to make defense acquisition workforce reductions during fiscal year 1991 that would adversely affect the ability of that installation or facility to perform its mission.

    (c) For purposes of this section, the term ‘defense acquisition workforce reductions’ means the reductions in the defense acquisition workforce required by section 905 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1991 (Public Law 101-510; 104 Stat. 1621).
