If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)

It is likely that your contract will require some kind of modification over its period of performance. (unless it is for a simple commodity purchase)  Modifications may have a large impact (to the specification, schedule, statement of work, etc.) or may make minor administrative changes with no impact to the work.

Kevin and Paul discuss FAR Part 43 and provide an overview of the process and rules for modifying Government contracts.  Learn the different types of modifications, who can authorize changes to the contract, and why Government and Industry negotiation “power” changes after contract award.


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.
