Profit can be a divisive issue in the Government market.  How much is appropriate?  How much is too much?

In this encore presentation Kevin and Paul discuss why profit matters to both Government and Industry.  Learn the statutory limits on profit and how the Government assesses how much profit is “fair”.  You’ll also gain an appreciation of how profit potential drives decision making for industry and how the Government can attract the best companies to the Government market.

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.

Kevin and Paul discuss FedBizOps.gov. (FBO) FBO is Federal Business Opportunities. It’s where nearly every opportunity to do business with the Federal Government is posted online. (as required by FAR 5.102)

Learn why industry should not be too excited to hear about an opportunity for the first time on FBO and why Government acquisition teams should consider posting more draft and imperfect documents on FBO.
