Beers with Brent No. 1: An IPA + perception of contractors

Fed Talks is a series of audio episodes featuring current issues in government contracting, offering thoughtful, bite-sized insights with rotating guests from inside and outside Baker Tilly.

On the inaugural installment of our Fed Talks miniseries edition: Beers with Brent, we discuss the government’s perception of contractors.  Questions addressed include:

  • How do contractors respond to an often-negative public perception?
  • What is the perception vs. reality when it comes to contractor profits?
  • How do the goals of contractors trying to run a business conflict with a government tasked with being stewards of the taxpayer?

This week’s beer: Chameleon IPA
