Executive Order 13495 | Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers Under Service

Revokes: Executive Order 13204, February 17, 2001 more info.
Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers Under Service

When a service contract expires, and a follow-on contract is awarded for the same service, at the same location, the successor contractor or its subcontractors often hires the majority of the predecessor's employees. On some occasions, however, a successor contractor or its subcontractors hires a new work force, thus displacing the predecessor's employees.

The Federal Government's procurement interests in economy and efficiency are served when the successor contractor hires the predecessor's employees. A carryover work force reduces disruption to the delivery of services during the period of transition between contractors and provides the Federal Government the benefits of an experienced and trained work force that is familiar with the Federal Government's personnel, facilities, and requirements.

Therefore, by the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act, 40 U.S.C. 101 et seq., and in order to promote economy and efficiency in Federal Government procurement, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. It is the policy of the Federal Government that service contracts and solicitations for such contracts shall include a clause that requires the contractor, and its subcontractors, under a contract that succeeds a contract for performance of the same or similar services at the same location, to offer those employees (other than managerial and supervisory employees) employed under the predecessor contract whose employment will be terminated as a result of the award of the successor contract, a right of first refusal of employment under the contract in positions for which they are qualified. There shall be no employment openings under the contract until such right of first refusal has been provided. Nothing in this order shall be construed to permit a contractor or subcontractor to fail to comply with any provision of any other Executive Order or law of the United States.

The openings will be filled with Trump supporters.

8. It's actually the last in a series of revocations.

It revokes Obama's 2009 EO.

But Obama's revoked Bush's 2001 EO.

However, Bush's EO simply revoked Clinton's 1994 EO.

Clinton's EO cited two concerns: Hardship to displaced workers and (secondly) minimization of any disruption in provision of services.

It's original with Clinton.

While I get the disruption bit, I also have to acknowledge that hardship to those fired is mitigated by the reduction in hardship of those hired. (There can be claims and counterclaims as to "but you know that the replacements will have worse working conditions" arguments, but they're all fairly belief-heavy and fact-free.)

5. It's the smart play

Putin knows that one man can only do so much (especially one so lacking as trump) to destroy a government. Trump needs all the help he can get.
