PROJECT 38: A mega-deal, new Biden initiatives and CMMC drive the news cycle
2021 has gotten off to a fast start with the new Biden Administration coming in and there has been plenty of business activity as well. In this episode of Project 38, the editorial teams from Washington Technology and FCW talk with WT Editor Nick Wakeman about the news so far.
WT Senior Staff Writer Ross Wilkers shares his insights on what's behind the proposed merger of Peraton, Perspecta and Northrop Grumman's IT business, a mega deal that will create an $8 billion-annual revenue business.
FCW Executive Editor Adam Mazmanian talks about the early days of Biden Administration, particularly where the early political appointees are sailing through confirmation and where some of the trouble spots are appearing.
President Biden has been very active with executive orders, particularly with his equity agenda, and FCW Staff Writer Natalie Alms shares her reporting about what is in these orders and how they might impact government contractors.
Also top of mind for many contractors and especially defense firms is the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification. So we brought in Lauren Williams, senior editor of FCW and Defense Systems, to bring us up to date on CMMC and what's on the horizon.
