WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) today issued the following statement: “The recent passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act has given the U.S. government a powerful tool to use in the protection of our valuable partners in the federal contractor workforce, as we together face the COVID-19 crisis.
