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

Sometimes a contract needs to be modified after award.  Some changes are administrative.   Other changes may impact cost, schedule, or the requirements.  In the Government acquisition world, this kind of change is usually called an Engineering Change Proposal.(ECP)

Learn why ECPs aren’t usually easy or fast and how the relationship between the Government and Industry players can impact the negotiation of an ECP.


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.
