Award Season? Yes!
Put the red-carpet couture back in the closet. This award season has nothing to do with the Academy, international celebrities, acceptance speeches or after parties. It’s not associated with a showcase showdown on the Price Is Right or anyone coming to your front door with a film crew, balloons, and an enormous check from Publisher’s Clearing House. I do love the idea of that, though, so sign me up!
The award season I’m referencing has to do with the Government Procurement calendar. While that may seem less exciting to some, it’s absolutely thrilling for government contractors. So – what does that mean for you, fellow human, Government Contractor, and/ or Small Businessperson?
You may have noticed that it’s already April. In a few short weeks, beginning in June or July (depending upon the organization), the Government will start to issue Request for Proposals, or RFPs. Contracting Officers (KOs), need to spend their agency’s funds before the fiscal year ends on September 30.
