SmallGovCon readers, have a great Thanksgiving! We won’t be posting our weekly roundup next week due to the holiday, but we’ll catch up on any missed news the following week.
In the mean time, enjoy this week’s roundup of federal contracting news. Also be sure to enjoy the family, friends, and food at your Thanksgiving table. My personal favorite–stuffing! Below are some interesting updates about GSA’s investigation into the rocky transition to beta.sam.gov, a guilty plea in a “Rent-A-Vet” Scheme, and Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division establishing New Business Opportunities.
