SmallGovCon Week in Review: August 13-17, 2018

It’s mid-August, which means school is back in session! If you have little ones, we hope they had a nice first few days back.

But before we head out to enjoy the weekend, let’s take a look at the SmallGovCon Week in Review. In this week’s edition, the Pentagon’s procurement process is criticized, contractors are reminded how to prep for a government shutdown (let’s hope one doesn’t happen), and more.

Have a great weekend!
