Contractors in Maryland are concerned about the effects of the recent federal spending resolution as
agencies need to award a year's worth of contracts in just five months, Hope A. Lane, a
partner with consulting firm Aronson LLC, told the Maryland Gazette.
Contractors are worried about increased competition and lack
of financial security as federal agencies need to do more with fewer funds and
rush to hand out contracts before the next budget cycle arrives, the article said.
This issue, as well as ways to help companies network and
learn about receiving federal contracts, was discussed at the Montgomery County
Chamber's GovConNet Procurement Conference and Expo on May 4.
