If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
Do the words cost and price mean the same thing to you? In most of your life the answer is probably yes. In the business world (and Government acquisition world) they are quite different. Confusing the two can cause real problems.
Paul discusses the important distinction between cost and price with regular guest Wendy Frieman. Learn the general elements of “cost”, the complexity of cost estimation, and why pricing is more than just building up the costs.

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.
