Contractor Accountability and Workplace Safety Act of 2017

This bill requires contracting officers of the Department of Defense (DOD), before awarding or renewing a contract for the procurement of property or services valued over $1 million, as part of determining whether an offeror is a responsible source with a satisfactory record of performance that meets DOD's mission and ethical standards, to consider any identified violations of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSHA) or equivalent state laws by the offeror or any subcontractors of that offeror.

DOD shall establish policies and practices to:

  • ensure that contracting officers request that contractors provide all of the information they deem necessary for demonstrating responsibility prior to final determinations; and
  • establish mechanisms for contractors to have expedited processes to review any information used to support determinations of non-responsibility and to appeal such determinations.

DOD must protect the rights of contractors to protest bids and appeal actions taken pursuant to this bill.

The Government Accountability Office must submit a specified report on the health and safety records of DOD contractors.
