February 7, 2012 -- This week on Off the Shelf, Steve Schooner, Nash & Cibinic Professor of Government Procurement Law and Co-Director of the Government Procurement Law Program at The George Washington University Law School, provides his thought-provoking views on current federal procurement policy developments.
