H.R. 1252: DHS Acquisition Authorities Act of 2017

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1252 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 1252 establishes the Under Secretary for Management as the Department of Homeland Security’s Chief Acquisition Officer responsible for approving, pausing, modifying, or canceling major acquisition programs as needed. The legislation defines major acquisition programs as total expenditures above $300 million. The Under Secretary can delegate such authorities for amounts below this threshold.
