Hello, Readers! Can you believe we’re more than halfway through December already? The holidays are upon us! Houses are decorated with twinkling lights.

Hopefully despite all that hustle and bustle, you’re getting to enjoy quality time with your loved ones.

The hot topics in government contracting this week include some new vaccine mandate lawsuit updates, cybersecurity measures, and a push for the federal government toward clean energy and sustainability.

Good day, Readers! The holidays are quickly approaching and everything is looking festive and bright here in Lawrence, Kansas.

There was a lot of news in federal government contracting, this week. Here are some articles we found particularly interesting, including updates on cybersecurity (including CMMC), some new GSA GWACs, and a potential Stopgap Spending Bill.

Happy Friday! We hope you had a wonderful and reflective Veteran’s day.

Thanks to the many wonderful people at APTAC, including Allen Waldo, who helped make that conference a success. It was a great event.

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. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to recognize and honor all veterans of war. Koprince McCall Pottroff LLC would like to thank all veterans for your service.

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.
