This week on Amtower Off Center, host Mark Amtower welcomed back Washington Technology editor in chief Nick Wakeman for a wide-ranging discussion covering:

  • The mergers and acquisition climate for GovCon, including some of the bigger deals, like  SAIC/Unisys;
  • the popularity of “best-in-class” (BIC) contracts, like SEWP, the NITAAC contracts, etc. Both Amtower and Wakeman expressed some curiosity as to the process of and criteria for “best-in-class”;
  • Some the the issues BIC brings to bear on small contractors; and
  • The budget outlook for the election year, both predicting no shutdown as well as a probable continuing resolution.
