In a typical year, the U.S. government is the largest purchaser of goods and services in the world and spends more than $400 billion annually. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the resulting toll placed on military supplies and equipment expands federal spending by several hundred billion dollars. Additionally, to recover from near economic collapse, the U.S. government is spending money (as quickly as possible) to “stimulate” economic growth and liquidity. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) is unusual in that its primary objective is to spend several hundred billion additional dollars by next fall, with only a secondary objective of procuring goods and services. Opportunity, interest in, and the potential for reward from government contracting has never been greater.
This year's Annual Update on Government Contracts seminar focused on:
Contract Changes and Claim Submissions
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act: An Update on the Government's Stimulus Efforts and Activities
