If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)

Government Contracting Officers are required to make a determination that a contractor is “responsible” before awarding a contract.  (FAR 9.104)  This determination requires a review of the contractor’s financial resources, performance record, and business capabilities. (among other things…)

Kevin and Paul discuss why it is important for industry to understand how the Government evaluates responsibility and why Government Contracting Officers should be prepared to help small businesses pass this test.
