As we enter day 21 of the government shutdown (as of this writing, the second-longest in U.S. history), federal employees and contractors are feeling the sting.

In this week’s edition of the Week In Review, we’ll take a look at the shutdown in more detail. It has, after all, been the predominant news story of late in the government contracting world. But we’ll also discuss other news, including a new law aimed at helping veteran-owned companies, recent OTA guidance, and more.

Have a great weekend!
