SmallGovCon Week In Review: March 9 – March 13, 2020

Like the rest of the nation and world, we at Koprince Law are closely watching and listening to the recommendations of our public health authorities on a local, regional, and national level. It’s times like these that remind us (not that we need it) of the importance of the government and government contractors in responding to crises. As Tom Hanks said, listen to what medical authorities recommend.

This week, there was plenty of news about the coronavirus and how it will impact federal contracting, as well as pieces about cyber insurance for government contractors, a timeline for cybersecurity auditors, and questions about GSA’s planned e-commerce initiative.
