As Congress tries to piece together the big National Defense Authorization Act for 2015, it's also looking back to the version of the bill it passed two years ago and asking what ever happened with some of those provisions. The 2013 version of the NDAA included several provisions dealing with small business that made advocates happy. But several of those legal changes are still awaiting agency regulations to actually implement them. The House Small Business Committee held a hearing on the matter earlier today. Larry Allen was among the witnesses. He's president of Allen Federal Business Partners. He shared his insights on the neglected proposals on In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu.

Larry Allen, president of Allen Federal Business Partners and author of the Week Ahead newsletter, tells In Depth with Francis Rose GSA's new category management strategy might actually be a blast from the past.

That mindset should sound familiar because it's already part of the Federal Acquisition Regulation. Larry Allen, president of Allen Federal Business Partners and author of the Week Ahead newsletter, tells In Depth with Francis Rose, whether this is a duplicative rule or not.
