Analysis
This ordinance establishes requirements relating to the city’s purchase of technology products to ensure that technology is not purchased which may be a threat to national security. “Suspect technology” is defined as technology identified by the U.S. House of Representatives’ permanent select committee on intelligence, or other federal body or agency, as posing a national security threat.
