If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
Kevin and Paul discuss another one of those “only in GovCon” situations – you have a contract in hand, but you’re not allowed to work because there isn’t any money allocated to it.
Listen and learn how FAR Part 32 and a couple clauses – FAR 52.232-18, “Availability of Funds” and FAR 52.232-19, “Availability of Funds for the Next Fiscal Year” – give the Contracting Officer the flexibility to award a contract that crosses fiscal years with one-year money. (If all that sounds super confusing, give it a listen. We break it all down for you)

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.
