If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
Letter contracts are a special type of contract that allow the Government to authorize a contractor to start work immediately when there isn't time to negotiate every detail of the contract in time to meet the requirement.
Kevin and Paul discuss the letter contract process and the pitfalls that both government and industry can avoid through open communication and planning.

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.
