This week on "Off the Shelf", Steve Schooner, Nash & Cibinic Professor of Government Procurement Law at The George Washington University Law School, provides his "Year in Review" highlighting key trends, events and personalities (legacies) of 2013.

Schooner highlights the spending trends marking 2013 as the first year on year decline in procurement dollars and what it means for government and industry.

He also discusses the explosive growth in grants versus contracts and how grants "oversight" is about to become more like contracts.

Schooner will also give us his take on DoD's Better Buying Power Initiative, the DoD Performance Measurement Initiative, key personnel legacies, and 2013 stories that we would like to forget.
