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

What can happen when a contractor breaks the rules? We’ve talked about suspension and debarment, the extreme “you aren’t eligible for Federal contract awards anymore” result. In some cases, extenuating circumstances may cause the government to turn to other options, such as allowing the contractor to continue to operate under the watchful eyes of an Independent Monitor.

Kevin and Paul discuss the types of situations when an Independent Monitor might be assigned, the role of the Independent Monitor, and the outcomes desired.
