If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
Full and Open competition is the Government’s way of saying that all companies can compete. Many competitions are set aside for small businesses only or have other restrictions on who can compete. Full and open competition gives any responsible company a chance to win.
Kevin and Paul discuss why it is important for both Government and Industry to understand when and why full and open competition is appropriate. In addition, learn why the Government’s acquisition planning and Industry’s targeting and shaping activities should begin by addressing whether or not full and open competition is the most beneficial acquisition strategy.
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.
