SmallGovCon Week In Review April 8 – April 12, 2019

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s a beautiful day in Lawrence, as we seemed to have dodged the bullet with the massive mid-April winter storm that’s affected our friends up north. No matter where you’re located, we hope you’ve had a great week, too.

Before we head out for the weekend, it’s time for the Week In Review. In this week’s edition, we’ll take a look at the nominee to head the SBA, VA contracting goals, a new DoD rule to implement the nonmanufacturer rule to 8(a) contracts, and more.

Have a great weekend!
