Claude Goddard — Partner, Husch Blackwell
Federal contract eligibility depends in large part on the relationship with a contracting officer. But sometimes COs deny contracts based on what another agency says about a company's conduct.
Claude Goddard, a partner at Husch Blackwell, and the author of The Contractor's Perspective blog, joins In Depth to discuss whether contracting officers can deny deny contract based on the conclusions or investigations of other agencies.
Gordon Adams — Professor of International Relations, American University
Sequester or otherwise, the defense budget is going to shrink over the next few years. Debates will continue over how best to shrink costs while maintaining a strong fighting force. But there might be a way to have both.
In a commentary on Foreign Policy, Gordon Adams, a distinguished fellow at the Stimson Center and professor of U.S. foreign policy at American University, notes that even before the cuts go into effect, the defense budget is in a period of draw-down.
Gordon says embracing sequestration might help the White House force a more disciplined fiscal approach on the Pentagon.

Guy Timberlake, co-founder and chief visionary officer of the American Small Business Coalition, joins In Depth to discuss these opportunities.
