Join Mid-Tier Advocacy as we honor our Veterans during this special breakfast featuring the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) . As a result of the Supreme Court Case Kingdomware Inc. v the United States the VA must apply the so-called rule of two to all of its procurements as described here. This leads to many new opportunities for businesses to team on contracts within the VA.
