SmallGovCon Week in Review: March 20-24, 2023

Happy Spring, Readers! I don’t know about you but I’m looking forward to warmer temperatures and a lot more sunshine in the coming months. We have had a lot of grey, gloomy weather here in Kansas lately and I feel that we are all ready for some fun, outside activities. Spring is a great time of transition and speaking of transition, I will now transition to some federal government contracting news this week. Have a great weekend and we hope you can enjoy spring in your neck of the woods.
