SmallGovCon Week in Review: May 29- June 2, 2023

Happy Friday! We hope you had a great week and can take time to enjoy your weekend. We’ve been receiving a lot of rain here in the Midwest lately. The rain gauge was completely full and topped out at 4 1/2″ in a 12 hour span of time, this past week. Everything outside is looking beautiful and I’m guessing there will be a lot of lawn mowing going on this weekend.

We’ve included several articles that hopefully provide some good information concerning federal government contracting this week. Enjoy your weekend!
