Federal law restricts the investment by foreign individuals and corporations into industries with implications for national security. This pertains to the construction industry in the building of sensitive ports, airports, military installations, and more. Numerous additional national security requirements also pertain to the construction industry, including requirements relating to secure facilities, infrastructure, and supply chains.

Mr. Randall Cook will provide an overview of these national security-related requirements affecting the construction industry. Among other items, he will describe his work related to construction of a “Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility” (SCIF), a secure facility such as the Situation Room in the White House where confidential information can be exchanged. Any foreign national with a financial interest in the project must be kept separate from sensitive aspects of the documentation and construction, and Mr. Cook will share how these controls are put in place.

Mr. Randall Cook has more than 20 years of experience as a former federal prosecutor, in-house executive leader and counsel, Inspector General, law firm attorney, and U.S. Army officer leading and advising organizations engaged with critical operational, compliance, and risk mitigation challenges. Mr. Cook has supervised the design and implementation of CFIUS-required independent third-party monitorship programs for (among others): a spacecraft company with divested Russian ownership; a global technology company that acquired software products used by U.S. government agencies; a global financial services company that was acquired by a Chinese multi-national; a global hospitality services franchise with Chinese investment; and a foreign-owned sensitive solar power facility.
