Kevin and Paul discuss the variables that impact Industry’s ability to provide resources (meaning people) to meet the Government’s requirements.  These issues impact both service contracts and development contracts – anywhere that contractors must hire employees.

Learn how both the Government and Industry sometimes contribute to problems hiring and maintaining employees throughout the execution of a contract and tips for how to avoid these problems.  As always, communication between Government and Industry is key to recognizing when staffing problems may be encountered during the acquisition and execution zones.


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.
