June 3, 2014 -- This week on "Off the Shelf", John Hillen, former CEO of Sotera Defense Solutions, and current executive in residence and professor of practice at George Mason University's School of Management, joins host Roger Waldron for a discussion of the GovCon services market.

Hillen outlines the growth of the GovCon market from its infancy in the 1960's and 70's to its current state.

He tackles the fundamental question: Is the GovCon services market a "real" market?

The answer has major policy implications for the procurement system's role in delivering 21st Century solutions for the American people.

Hillen also makes the case for the continued maturation of the GovCon market as vital to delivering best value solutions for government customers.
