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

This is Part 1 of our mini-series on the “Fair Opportunity” process.  Kevin and Paul discuss the difference between FAR Part 15 and FAR Part 16.5 competitions beginning with an overview of Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts.  Learn why the flexibility offered by multiple award IDIQ contracts has increased their popularity and how that flexibility has been used successfully and sometimes not so successfully.

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.
