Government Contracts: Risk and Opportunities in the Age of Trump
The presentation will cover areas of opportunity for government contractors under the Trump Administration, such as cyber security, U.S.-manufactured goods, and support for SOCOM and CENTCOM, both of which are based at MacDill Air Force Base just outside of Tampa Bay. While government contracting presents some significant opportunities, it also presents some unique risks. For that reason, the presentation will also briefly cover some of the key risks areas and compliance considerations, including the impact of some of the recent changes made by the Trump Administration.
