AGENCY PROFILE

Change in government is often a slow process. But there can be no doubt that since taking over as Secretary of Defense, there have been changes within the DoD - including within procurement.

What are the key changes that government contractors need to be aware of? What types of contracts or initiatives are likely to receive more attention under Mattis?

Discussion Forums

Join in the debate in our GovCon Discussion Forums. We seek to include a wide variety of topics important to b2g professionals. Registration is free. Some threads are "invitation only" due to topic sensitivity / privacy.
