SmallGovCon Week in Review: Dec. 7 – Dec. 11, 2020

Hope your holiday season is going well. I’m enjoying the start of college basketball–finally getting to watch the hometown Jayhawks, who ended last season at number 1 in the polls!

This week saw some key updates, including timing for STARS III awards and other small business GWACs, a report on mismanagement related to the AbilityOne program, and a new DOD directive to improve acquisition reform.
