Fed Talks podcast series

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 new Fed Talks miniseries, But why?, we discuss the purpose of contractor business systems with Baker Tilly subject matter specialist Drew Lewis. Questions addressed include:

  • What are contractor business systems and why are they emphasized today?
  • How relevant and useful are business system rules and why are contractors required to comply with them?
  • Are there other tools the government can use besides business systems to ensure federal funds are being spent appropriately?

Connect with us to hear more from our government contractor advisory team.
