Hello Ian, I would love to give you a hand here. As Chip mentions above having knowledge of key buying vehicles is important. If you don't have that background it's not a show stopper. In fact, what's more important is that you build and strengthen your business development skills. Please reach out at your convenience. I have several tools and resources you may find of value.

All the best.

Hi Ian, As you develop your strategy for getting into the Fed space, make sure you bring a depth of knowledge about FARs & DFARs. These impact both the the Client and BD person.
