SmallGovCon Week In Review December 17-21, 2018

Happy Holidays! Between all the shopping, baking, and decking the halls, it seems to be the busiest day of the year.

As we write this post, the federal government is on the verge of a partial shutdown. On behalf of our clients and friends, we hope that doesn’t happen.

In this edition of the Week In Review, there is a lot of criticism regarding government spending, the Pentagon gets a reminder to pay attention to its contractors, and the battle between Amazon and defense officials gets messy.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours!
