Commerce Department CHCO on back to office; Federal contracting with small businesses

On today’s episode of The Daily Scoop Podcast, the Marine Corps will create a new information command to support Force Design 2030.

Joe Jordan, president and CEO of Actuparo LLC and former U.S. chief acquisition officer, discusses why it’s important for SBA and government to increase contracting with small businesses, particularly small disadvantaged businesses and veteran-owned businesses.

A back to office plan is in place for the Department of Commerce. Jessica Palatka, director of human resources management and chief human capital officer at the Department of Commerce, discusses the agency’s back to office plan and how to engage the correct stakeholders while creating and implementing that plan.
