SmallGovCon Week in Review: November 7-11, 2022

On this Veteran’s Day, our firm salutes veterans. Veterans are extraordinarily modest.  They don’t ask for, or expect, a “thank you.”  But that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve one.  If you are a veteran, thank you very much for your service.  If you are not a veteran, take a moment today to thank the veterans in your life. We appreciate you and we truly thank you for your service today and every day.

We’ve included some articles on federal government contracting that we found informative, this week. Enjoy the weekend and happy Veteran’s Day!
