Yet another beautiful Spring Friday for us at SmallGovCon! And you guessed it, it’s time for your week in review.

And as allergies are reaching an all-time high for many, so too is the government’s spending on AI and other technology solutions and innovation! We’ve included some fascinating articles on these topics, and many others we think you will enjoy. Have a wonderful weekend!
