Life Moves Pretty Fast: Thank You, SmallGovCon Readers

As many clients and friends of Koprince Law LLC already know, I announced last week that I will be retiring from the active practice of law, effective May 10. As that date draws closer, I will also step down from my role as editor of SmallGovCon, where I’ve written over 1,100(!) posts.

Now that the federal government is open again (at least for now), let’s take a look at some of the post-shutdown news in this edition of the Week In Review. We’ll look at federal IT spending, mounting shutdown effects, and, as usual, some contractors behaving badly.

Have a great weekend!
