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

Kevin and Paul dive into one of the most exciting topics ever dared on the podcast: the contents of a contract file!  Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy…

This topic is another in the line of “why does Government acquisition take so long?”.  We review FAR 4.803 and explain the importance of maintaining complete files for both Government and Industry. (it isn’t always apparent at the time to the “filer”)


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.
