Podcast: What the ED Contract Delay Means for ARM

October 24th, 2016

The wait for the U.S. Department of Education’s unrestricted contract drags on. Kaulkin Ginsberg speculated in a recent blog that ED would make awards at the end of their fiscal year on September 30th, but that day came and went without any updates.

However, just last week ED announced they now intend to grant contracts by the end of calendar year 2016, extending this announcement window through December.

Mike Ginsberg recently had a candid and insightful conversation about the procurement process with expert Randy Kamm, principal at Collection Quotient Consulting. This podcast sheds light on why ED is delaying their decision, what participants can expect, and how this three-year wait will impact the ARM industry.
