Every day, we encounter situations in government contracting that don’t make sense to us. Although there are untold reasons for the insanity we see, we ascribe most to a single root cause: regulations describe what to do and when, but don’t explain why or for what purpose. Unfortunately, this lack of context, coupled with the perceived safety of black-and-white decision-making, fosters overly-narrow (and often unreasonable) interpretation of the regulations.
Uncommon Sense takes aim at these topics, then zooms out for a clearer view. In doing so, we necessarily omit many technical details and nuances. Uncommon Sense is not intended to map every regulatory minefield. Rather, it wonders if there is a reasonable way to get where we need to go – or if we’re even heading in the right direction.
