It’s mid-October, and my Chicago Cubs are still playing. After a thrilling comeback win over the Giants, the Cubs will take on the Los Angeles Dodgers starting tomorrow in the National League Championship Series.

Time will tell. But as the baseball playoffs move forward, I’m keeping my eyes on government contracting news–and there’s plenty of it this week. In the latest SmallGovCon Week In Review, a large trade group has filed a lawsuit to block the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces final rule, GSA updates its Dun & Bradstreet contract, Guy Timberlake addresses the potential effects of the 2017 NDAA, and much more.
