Happy June, Readers! Can you believe it’s the start of summer already? This year is certainly flying by. I hope you have lots of fun summer plans with family and friends. I know that I’m looking forward to it.
We’ve included several articles that hopefully provide some good information concerning federal government contracting today. Enjoy the weekend!
Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day started on May 30th, 1868 as a day of remembrance for Civil War veterans. According to History.com, the date was chosen because it wasn’t tied to any particular battle.
In 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. This Act established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May in order to create a three-day weekend for federal employees. The change went into effect in 1971. The same law also declared Memorial Day a federal holiday.
We would like to thank our veterans and active military personnel, and their families, on this day and everyday. Thanks for your service. We appreciate you and the sacrifices made for our country.
We invite you to tune into this informative podcast series hosted by The Smalls with discussions on federal government contracting. I just taped an episode with Nate Moser and it was a blast! In it, I discussed what we do at the firm to assist our federal government contracting clients, including things like drafting joint venture and mentor-protégé agreements. The podcast comes out in June and I hope you will give it a listen.
The Smalls is nonprofit consortium of Government Contractors, Service Providers, and Manufacturers in Colorado. This weekly podcast is designed for Small Government Contractors, Service Providers, and Manufacturers, as part of the Government Contractor Ecosystem, connecting people, organizations, and resources.
