SmallGovCon Week In Review: January 13 – January 17, 2020

You’ve got to love Kansas weather. Last week it was 65 degrees and sunny, and now we’re due for an ice storm. There’s always something new if you don’t like the current weather.

It’s kind of the same way with government contracting. There’s always something new. This week, there are updates about the government getting over $3 billion from False Claims Act Case, updates about the timing for CMMC cybersecurity certifications, and the goals of the new SBA administrator.
