New blog provides in-depth analysis of news, developments, and trends impacting government contracting and procurement
MCLEAN, VIRGINIA (October 21, 2015) – Morrison & Foerster is pleased to announce the launch of Government Contract Insights, a blog offering timely updates and analysis of the statutory, regulatory, and legal developments shaping the business of government contracts and procurement.
The blog is co-edited by Brad Wine and Richard Vacura, partners and co-chairs of the firm’s Government Contracts group, who commented: “The government procurement process is complex and intensely regulated. With the U.S. Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs stepping up its scrutiny of contractors, compliance is critical. Our blog will help keep readers on top of the latest news and help them make sense of the ever-changing policies and regulations affecting the government contracts arena.”
Covering a wide range of topics — including acquisition regulations, compliance, cybersecurity, sanctions, and federal and international procurement, among others — the new blog will feature perspectives and insights from across MoFo’s government contracts team.
Recent blog posts on hot topics in the government contracts space include:
