If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)

Contracting Officers must determine that a company is responsible before awarding a contract.  How does a small company that has never done business with the Government convince the Contracting Officer that they are responsible?

Kevin and Paul discuss FAR 19.601, Certificates of Competency and Determinations of Responsibility. Learn how a small business that has been determined to be non-responsible (due to a lack of documentation or history, among other things) can receive a Certificate of Competency from the Small Business Administration and why the Certificate is a powerful tool for new entrants to the Government Market.

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.
