Venable quoted in Federal Computer Week story on insourcing

1 min

An April 8, 2010 article in Federal Computer Week quoted a Venable publication on a recent insourcing case where the United States Air Force cancelled an effort to insource a contract that had been performed by a small business for over ten years.

"This case demonstrates that although the Obama administration may be seeking to insource much of the services the federal government currently fulfills through private contractors, it will not be allowed to do so in a carte blanche manner," said the Venable newsletter.

The Federal Computer Week story reinforced that government contractors are nervous about new contracting guidelines, which they say add more turbulence to the major procurement transformations of the past year.

"Contractors Can Challenge the Government's In-Sourcing Efforts," the Venable newsletter quoted in the story, was authored by Venable Government Contracts attorneys Rob Burton and Dismas Locaria.
