The STEM Wilted Before it Had Time to Grow

As reported in TOMORROW’s edition of the Federal Register, the DoD will be cancelling wiltedflowerthe STEM proposed rule.  I had reported on this proposed rule  about a month ago.  Additionally, I have noted a trend throughout government to push STEM training.  It appears the direction under NDAA 2012 does not require a contract clause to create such a push (yet).  It seems to me a good idea coming from the halls of government is getting put on the back burner for now.  Stay tuned, I am sure this will come back again in some form or another.


“DoD has determined that the proposed amendment to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) is not a necessary part of the Department’s plan to implement a section of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, that requires DoD to encourage contractors to develop science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs.”
