386 - What is commercial in the government's eyes?
If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
The FAR has long defined commercial items, though the very term "commercial item" has created confusion for both government and industry acquisition and sales teams.
Kevin and Paul discuss the "new and improved" definitions of commercial in the FAR, including the expansion from a somewhat generic "commercial item" into commercial products and commercial services. (which are just two of the categories in the new definition)
Listen and learn how this update helps both government and industry meeting their missions.
