July 19, 2011 -- Ray Bjorklund, vice president and chief knowledge officer for Deltek Information Solutions joins host Roger Waldron to discuss the current compressed procurement cycle and final quarter of the Government's fiscal year.

The unprecedented delay in the budget has significantly reduced the government's time to apportion and allocate funds for procurements.

In turn, contracting officers are dealing with compressed procurement timeframes.

Bjorklund will talk about the status of current funding, likely procurement tools contracting officers will be using over the final two months of the fiscal year, and what will likely be purchased.
