If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
How does context influence perception in Government Acquisition? Kevin and Paul discuss context, the central concept behind the Contracting Officer Podcast, as it relates to the Government acquisition process and Government contracting in general.
Without context, every conversation can lead to misunderstandings, open questions, guesses, and in the case of source selections: protests. Don’t assume that the people on the other side of the issue understand your position. Explain! Give them the context they need to ensure you aren’t talking past each other. Learn what Government and Industry professionals can do to improve communication through real life examples.
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.
