SmallGovCon Week In Review April 22 – April 26, 2019

Happy Friday, everyone! I’m back in the office after presenting at a HUBZone workshop sponsored by the Oklahoma Bid Assistance Network (Oklahoma’s PTAC). It was a great day, discussing HUBZone eligibility, compliance, and updates. For great events in your area, be sure to connect with your local PTAC!

Before we all head out for the weekend, let’s review the week in government contracting. In this edition of the Week In Review, we’ll look at efforts to speed up small business payments, the role of automation in government contracting, and more contractors behaving badly . . . .

Have a great weekend!
