If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
A unique feature of small business set-aside source selections is the Contracting Officer is required to identify the “apparently successful offeror” to all offeror prior to award. This preaward notice invites the offeror to challenge the size status or small business status of the apparent winner if the offerors have concerns.
Kevin and Paul discuss the requirements of FAR 15.503(a)(2), the value it provides the Government, and why Industry should be prepared to quickly respond to this preaward notice. (it’s more interesting than it seems…seriously)

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.
