Abstract : Section 908 of the 1982 DOD Authorization Act (10 U.S.C. 2315) modifies the coverage of Section 111 of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949--the Brooks Act (40 U.S.C. 759)--by exempting certain DOD procurements of ADP equipment and services. In addition to a general exemption concerning equipment and services 'critical to direct fulfillment of military or intelligence missions' discussed below, the Authorization Act specifically exempts from the requirements of Public Law 89-306 DOD's procurement of ADP equipment or services if the function, operation, or use of the equipment or services involves: (1) intelligence activities, (2) cryptologic activities related to national security, (3) the command and control of military forces, and (4) equipment that is an integral part of a weapon or weapons systems.
