I’ve been a contractor (17+ years) and am now government.
As a contractor I had to wear two hats, helping my government action officers solve problems for the benefit of the taxpayers and maximizing direct labor for the benefit of shareholders. As a government person, I don’t need to worry about shareholders, but I do have to occasionally second guess a contractor’s contribution to the discussion of the day, because I couldn’t be sure what hat they put on that day.
Hopefully, GovLoop will not become a place where ads and plugs have to be dodged to get to the conversation.
