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.

As in any market, the Government contracting world is full of scams. We spend a lot of time on this podcast discussing how complicated doing business with the Federal Government can seem to beginners.  We know that there are many upstanding consultants and companies that help new entrants to the Government market get started. (and some are free like the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) and other Small Business Administration resources) There are also scam artists who misrepresent the complexity and costs and swindle aspiring Government contractors out of thousands of dollars.

In this episode Paul sits down with special guest Shelley Hall to clarify that it does not cost ANYTHING to register to do business with the Federal Government.  In addition, Paul and Shelley discuss a range of free resources available to Industry to simplify the process of registering and submitting a bid.
