SmallGovCon Week In Review: February 3 – February 7, 2020

This past week, the whole Kansas City region (including our office) as well as much of the nation, celebrated the Chiefs victory in the Super Bowl. It was a long time coming for the Chiefs, but a well-deserved win.

While perhaps not as exciting as the Super Bowl, this week also saw some intriguing federal contracting stories. Among them, new details on DOD cybersecurity initiatives, continuing GSA schedule consolidation, and the Army and Navy work on a modern contract writing system.
