Another year, another potential Government shutdown.  What does this really mean for Government contractors?  What does it mean for Government acquisition personnel?

Kevin and Paul explain why a Government shutdown isn’t really a shutdown and describe the common impacts to Government contracts.  Learn why communication (especially with the Contracting Officer) is essential for navigating the annual threat of a Government shutdown.


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.

    Great discussion. Several key comments of wisdom asserted within for government contractors to consider. Shutdowns are going to occur and eventually impact every viable contractor with an ongoing business concern. One comment regarding cash flow or the lack thereof during a shutdown was especially interesting from my point of view. I’ve witnessed several of our clients roll through government shut downs without cash flow delays and without a material impact to their business. While in discussions with prospects, I’ve heard several hard stories from contractors who did not weather the shutdowns well due to material delays in funding. Partnering with a lender who understands government contracting is paramount during a shutdown. I would be interested in hearing other’s stories as it pertains to actual experiences with cash flow during a prior government shutdown.
