SmallGovCon Week in Review: February 14-18, 2022

Happy Friday, Readers! We hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and a very productive week. Another winter storm blew in on Thursday and we received 7 inches of snow. But do you know what we say in Kansas? “If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute. ” By Monday we will reach a temperature of almost 70 degrees! The weather in Kansas can change on a dime.

We put together some informative articles on federal government contracting news. Enjoy and stay warm or cool or anywhere in between in your part of the world. We’ll be doing the same here. I just wonder if I’ll need a heavy coat or a light jacket? Best to be prepared and keep both handy. Have a great weekend.
