SmallGovCon Week in Review: Dec. 28, 2020 – Jan. 8, 2021

I was going to wish a Happy New Year to our readers, and I still hope people are having a nice start to the New Year. But the recent violence in the Capital has cast a pall over the start to this year. As citizens of this fine country and people striving to improve federal government services, I think we can agree it was an event that should never be repeated.

But, as federal contractors know, the government continues to function and we bring you these recent federal contracting updates, including reports on spending in the last fiscal year, relief funds going to contractors, and an expansion of Women’s Business Centers.
