SmallGovCon Week in Review: November 1-5, 2021

Happy Friday, Readers. We hope you had a productive week. November 11 is Veteran’s Day. This holiday started as a day to honor the heroism of those who died in our country’s service and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I.

As usual, there was a lot happening in federal government contracting this week. Here are a few articles that may be of interest. Have a great weekend.
