I hope you and yours enjoyed a wonderful Halloween. My kids enjoyed a brief round of trick-or treating but on the home front, we ran out of candy rather early (due, in part, to a rather disturbing trend on the part of some costumed kids to blatantly grab entire fistfuls of candy from the dish).
With Halloween festivities over, what better way to spend a Friday afternoon than catching up on government contracting news? In this week’s SmallGovCon Week In Review, a small business subcontractor sues a prime for breach of a teaming agreement, the DoD announces plans to audit Buy American Act compliance, the Army pushes WOSB acquisitions, and much more.
