March has arrived, and March Madness will be here soon. With the Kansas Jayhawks looking like a top seed and my Duke Blue Devils sitting at Number 14 in the Coaches Poll, I’m hoping to be watching my teams a lot this month.
While we await conference tournaments and Selection Sunday, it’s time for the SmallGovCon Week In Review. This week’s edition is packed with the latest developments in government contracting, including guilty pleas from seven defendants accused of contract fraud, questions about the Trump administration’s position on category management, the Federal Times takes a look at which agencies will have the most follow-on work up for grabs in 2017, and much more.
It’s hard to believe, but this is already the last SmallGovCon Week In Review of February 2017. The year seems to be flying by, and there’s never a shortage of government contracting news. This week is no exception.
In this edition of the SmallGovCon Week in Review, one commentator suggests that the Trump administration revive an old contracting practice, a Pennsylvania man faces up to 10 years in prison after admitting to paying bribes and kickbacks on federal construction projects, government contracting gurus Guy Timberlake and Mark Amtower offer some candid commentary on the industry, and much more.
Happy (early) 4th of July! I hope you have something fun planned for this long weekend–and all the better if those plans include sunshine, fireworks, and plenty of BBQ. Before the holiday festivities begin, it’s time for our weekly dose of government contracting news and notes.
This edition of SmallGovCon Week In Review includes articles about a DoD bribery scandal, the release of the solicitation for the major Alliant 2 IT contracts, a look a the top 100 rankings in federal IT spending and much more.
Hopefully you will have some time to relax this weekend and enjoy the Super Bowl (or at least the commercials if that’s more your thing). Before we know it, March Madness will be here (although at the rate my Duke Blue Devils are going, they’re not likely to challenge for a repeat).
While we wait for the “Big Game,” it’s time for another installment of SmallGovCon Week In Review. This week, we have more sordid tales of procurement related bribery and misrepresentation, an excellent look at the set-aside programs for veterans, the struggles that women-owned businesses continue to face, and more.
It is hard to believe that Tuesday is Groundhog Day already. As we all wait in anticipation for him to emerge from his burrow, and hopefully not see his shadow, we offer you some reading material to help make your wait more enjoyable.
This final January 2016 edition of SmallGovCon Week In Review brings you a look at the Lockheed Martin/Leidos merger, a cautionary tale about the dangers of violating federal prevailing wage laws, new principles behind the VA’s procurement strategies, and much more.
With the unseasonably warm temperatures here in Kansas this week, we are trying to get ourselves into the holiday spirit as we patiently await the snow (not that I’m complaining if we don’t get any!)
As the holidays approach, here is our last edition of the SmallGovCon Week In Review. In this edition, changes are on the way with the DoD mentor-protege program, the Senate will consider a bill to sharply curtail the use of reverse auctions, charges are made in an alleged $10.35 million bribery scheme, and more.
After spending the majority of the week in Norman, Oklahoma for the ICBS Show, I am back in the office, and ready for our weekly dose of government contracts news and commentary.
