Revoking of Executive Order (E.O.) 14042 “Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors”

Tim Cannella, Acting Director of NASA LaRC’s Office of Procurement, requested that the following information, issued by NASA Assistant Administrator for Procurement Karla Smith Jackson on May 15, 2023, be shared with LaRC Contractors Steering Council members.

On May 9, 2023, President Biden issued an Executive Order (E.O. referred to as “the Order”) on Moving Beyond COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements for Federal Worker, which became effective at 12:01 am on May 12, 2023. The Order specifically revoked:  1) E.O.14042, which had required certain parties contracting with the Federal Government to provide COVID-19 safeguards to their workers; and 2) E.O. 14043, which had required vaccination for Federal civilian employees. Section 2 of the Order states that “[a]gency policies adopted to implement E.O. 14042…. to the extent such policies are premised on” that order, “no longer may be enforced and shall be rescinded consistent with applicable law.” 

Revoking of Executive Order (E.O.) 14042 “Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors”, published May 15, 2023.
