Government Contracts


Government contracts are a double-edged sword. They hold out the prospect of significant revenue on one hand and create significant administrative burdens on the other. Dealing with contracting officers and procurement activities can be a daunting experience. They have a unique vocabulary and deal in obscure and arcane concepts like IDIQ's, set-asides, FAR sections, the DFAR, and more.

We can help you understand which provisions and clauses apply to you and explain in layman's terms how to comply. Be it a proposal, a pending contract award, or establishing best practices for contract administration or project management The Contract Coach has the tools and experience to face that challenge.
PACA/AFRL Briefing With Industry Aug 13 - 15 2019 - Meet me at the PACANM / Air Force Research Laboratory "Briefing With Industry" August 13 - 15 at the Hotel Albuquerque. I'll be staffing the NCMA Rio Grande Chapter's booth at this event and attending many of the functions. What a great opportunity for those in the R&D community to meet, network, collaborate, and learn about upcoming projects at AFRL as well as the MDA and other Kirtland AFB organizations. See you there!

NCMA World Congress 2019 - I just returned from the 2019 NCMA WC in Boston where I joined with some 2,400 plus fellow contracts professionals for three days of the latest news from the profession's leaders and experts - both Government and Industry alike. Informative and interesting plus an opportunity to meet and chat with some very senior leaders. I made two presentations which were great fun and hopefully well received. Finally - and most heartwarming - I encountered a sizable number of my followers on social media - especially NCMA Collaborate - and received some very welcomed feedback from them.
