Welcome to 5 Things You Should Know, a new SmallGovCon series aimed at providing foundational information on topics relevant to government contractors.
In the posts that follow, I’ll try to distill complex contracting topics to their very essence. Unsure about what, exactly, a claim or bid protest is? What is the All Small mentor protégé program? I’ll walk through each of these topics (and others) and explain why they matter.
These posts won’t be a treatise on each topic discussed, but hopefully they’ll help you navigate the complex world of federal contracts.
If there’s a particular topic you’d be interested in learning more about, please send it to me.
In the first post, we’ll tackle the basics of bid protests. Other posts will follow approximately every two weeks.
