SmallGovCon Week In Review: August 10 – August 14, 2020

This week, the home-grown tomatoes are coming out in full force. It’s one of my favorite foods of the year. Hope you are also enjoying some late summer bounty.

There were other federal contracting updates just this week, such as the ban on certain Chinese products going into effect (which we discussed here), as well as some uncertainty for federal contractors due to recent executive branch announcements.
