PROJECT 38: How small businesses can breach the barrier of silence during the time of COVID
For this episode of Project 38, Katie Bilek and Stephanie Alexander, the founders and matchmakers at Govmates, return (with a Zoom assist) to Project 38 to help us turn a closer lens on small business and non-traditional government contracting amid the pandemic.
The Govmates duo say that GovCon has mostly fared well so far through the pandemic. But they are also here to caution that some agencies have a lot on their plate and may not be as vocal, which can be a barrier for small businesses and non-traditional firms seeking more of a government footprint.
Bilek and Alexander offer their advice on how to climb that barrier of silence in this conversation with Senior Staff Writer Ross Wilkers. Also on the agenda: changes to GovCon made permanent by COVID-19 and how companies are getting in tune with the Pentagon’s new CMMC cyber certification program.
