SmallGovCon Week In Review: July 4-8, 2022

Happy Friday, Readers! We hope you had a nice, long 4th of July weekend and we’d also like to show our appreciation for our veterans and active duty military personnel. Thank you for your service.

This week in federal government contracting news there were announcements from a key cyber agency set to get procurement authority this month as well as an announcement from the Federal Register concerning bid guarantees, performance and payment bonds, and alternative payment protection.
