SmallGovCon Week In Review: October 19-23, 2015

My poor, long-suffering Chicago Cubs will spend another winter without a World Series trophy.  Maybe next year the Cubbies will finally break the Curse of the Billy Goat.  In the meantime, there is plenty happening in the world of government contracting to keep my mind off of baseball.

In this week’s SmallGovCon Week In Review, a prison sentence is handed down in a SDVOSB fraud case while guilty pleas are entered in a separate case alleging DBE fraud, President Obama vetoes the 2016 NDAA, Carroll Bernard of GOVOLOGY provides an overview of the non-manufacturer rule, and much more.
