Associated General Contractors Of America

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency released new guidelines on essential critical infrastructure that clarifies construction's critical role. Federal officials heeded the association's advice and opted to release the new guidance that makes it clear that construction activities are included in its list of essential critical infrastructure workers. This new federal guidance should help eliminate the confusion and ambiguity that has led several state and local officials to needlessly order halts to construction activity that is clearly essential. Specifically, federal officials have opted to identify construction and related activities, including the manufacture and delivery of construction supplies and safety equipment and the permitting & inspection of projects, in 25 different parts of its guidelines, compared to four times in its prior iteration.
