By: Elizabeth Mordica
June 13th, 2022

GSA Schedule deliveries are an essential part of maintaining not only a good relationship with buyers but also maintaining contract compliance.

By: John Abel
May 31st, 2022

The 4th quarter always seems to be the most important--whether it’s in a football game where a quarterback is running a 2-minute drill while down one score, a basketball team is rallying back from a deficit and banking on a buzzer beater to take home the win, or even discussing government spending toward the end of the fiscal year when government agencies are rushing to use up their annual budget. One statistic that stands out to rookies and seasoned contracting veterans alike is that nearly one-third (yes, 1/3!) of federal contract dollars are awarded during Q4 of the government’s fiscal year.
