NEW ORLEANS (press release) – In the 2019 fiscal year, the United States government spent $594 billion dollars on business contracts – ranging from office supplies and janitorial services to technology and planning. Federal contract spending grew at a rate of nearly 7.6 percent every year since 2015, according to Bloomberg Government. Doing business with the government can be very lucrative work for businesses.

We invited two experts to provide their guidance and advice on how to navigate the contract system and to provide an update on what working with the government looks like in the midst of a pandemic.
