If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
Imagine reading your contract closely to determine how to approach a potential issue, only to find out that you are held to the requirements of a clause that isn’t written into the contract. Kevin and Paul discuss the Christian Doctrine, which holds that mandatory clauses that express a significant or “deeply ingrained strand of public procurement policy” will be considered to be in the contract by operation of law, even if they are omitted.

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.
