If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!) We’re here to help Government and Industry acquisition professionals understand more about how the other side thinks.
Another installment of our continuing series of interviews with former Government Contracting Officers who share their personal “3 things I wish I had known when I worked for the Government”. Meet Floyd Smith, a friend of Kevin’s who is a retired Army Officer and former Contracting Officer who also worked at the Defense Contract Management Agency. Floyd retired in 2009 and now works on the Industry side of the Government acquisition world.
Kevin sat down with Floyd to learn Floyd’s unique perspective on the gulf in understanding that often exists between Government and Industry acquisition professionals.
Kevin Jans and Paul Schauer created the Contracting Officer Podcast to help Government and Industry acquisition professionals understand more about how the other side thinks. Admittedly, the podcast’s name sounds very limiting. It is not just for contracting officers or even just for those in the contracting profession.
