SmallGovCon Week in Review: August 15-19, 2022

Happy Friday, Readers. I wanted to send another thank you to Carter Merkle, Berbon Hamilton, and all the other folks who made the ICBS Show 2022 such a great experience. There were some informative speakers and a great opportunity for networking. I was very pleased to be able to speak about local opportunities related to the infrastructure law. Hope you have a nice weekend and enjoy the Week In Review.

This week saw some interesting federal contracting stories, including new deadlines for GSA MACs, working with agency small business offices, and a spotlight on OCIs.
