SmallGovCon Week In Review April 1, 2019 – April 5, 2019

Happy Friday, everyone! With what seemed like the longest winter ever now officially behind us, it’s getting to be the time of year stuffed with weekend activities. At least that’s the case in my house: this weekend, my son has his first soccer game (and his dad has his first game coaching).

We hope that you’re gearing up for a weekend, too. Before we punch out, though, let’s review the news of the week. In this edition of the Week In Review, we’ll look at proposed improvements to DoD’s procurement process, additional cybersecurity considerations, improvements being made for the DoD procurement process, more cyber security suggestions, efforts to improve the supply chain, and more.

Have a great weekend!
