The Government Fiscal Year (GFY is the common acronym) runs 1 October through 30 September.  The last month of the GFY has the potential for great drama because Government funds have an expiration date. (check out Ep. 019 “Colors of Money” for more on that)

Kevin and Paul talk through what happens in Government acquisition offices at the end of the fiscal year and offer some simple recommendations for both Government and Industry to help reduce the panic and stress that September often brings.


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.  Anyone with an interest in the Federal acquisition world can benefit from the insight and down-to-earth explanations of complicated topics provided by the hosts.
