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

In a bit of a departure from the normal CO Podcast topics, we get a little “philosophical”.  Well…not really.  After a spirited “discussion” about how the ebb and flow of the economy in general impacts Government contractors we boiled it down to a basic principle:  Lucky vs. Good.

Kevin and Paul discuss the differences between lucky and good in the Government acquisition world and why both Government and Industry should recognize the impact of external forces on the competitive landscape.


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.
