John Shoraka, managing director of GovContractPros, outlines how acquisition officers are reacting to the partial shutdown, and what might happen when they go back to work.


The government’s acquisition vehicles are feeling the effects of the partial shutdown. While many of the shops are still open, they can’t do anything for their companion agencies. The uncertainty has made things complicated for both the government’s acquisition workforce and the private sector. John Shoraka, managing director of GovContractPros, says that shutdowns heavily impact contracting officers.   “Acquisition officers are in a difficult position, they are trying to be good stewards of the taxpayer dollar, they are trying to serve their program offices. At the same time facing this situation where they’re not allowed to come in and work. Being prepared in advance is important,” Shoraka said.
