If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
Can the Government negotiate with an individual offeror after the selection process has begun but before awarding a contract? You may be surprised to learn that the answer is yes!
Kevin and Paul discuss a source selection technique called “select to negotiate”. This process is allowable during task order competitions on multiple award IDIQs.
Learn why contractors fear this source selection strategy and how Government acquisition offices can use it to create a positive outcome for all.

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. As former government Contracting Officers who have also walked in industry’s shoes, Kevin and Paul share their perspectives in support of the podcast mission: Make government contracts better, one contract at a time.
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.
