Negotiations are an important part of the Government acquisition world.  (and the rest of your life, of course)  Kevin and Paul discuss the origin of “win-win” negotiations.  Learn the important difference between competition and negotiation and why embracing the solution as “ours” leads to better outcomes.


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.
