Post – Sequestration (“S”) Blues

FY13 has been an interesting political nightmare as the leaders of our country come to grip with a debt crisis.  For government workers, this is exacerbated by across the board cuts to the professional workforce.  Training organizations had justified their expenditures only to have their program halted due to budget drills in preparation of the “S.”  It is still not over as Congressional action merely delayed the final resolution.

Trio weathered the storm by examining the climate, assessing risk, then taking action like becoming more agile in training options and adding a new course to our DAU Equivalent Provider catalogue.   Just like many of you do in your profession.  We are prepared to help your organization get back on track; bring you the results you targeted.  It’s our mission to help you make your job easier.

Trio Sponsors “FH&H Bid Protest Seminar” for GovCon League

On Monday, 22 Apr 13, Trio Consulting hosted the GovCon League event presented by Fluet, Huber & Hoang.  The event speaker, FH&H attorney, Chris Nagel, presented a fluetcomprehensive overview of Bid Protests.  Not only did Mr. Nagle present how protests are done, along with certain rules, but he also tied the bid protest decision to the business by asking “Should we protest”.  He discussed the different levels of protests (i.e. agency, GAO, and Federal Court) and what is involved in each.

Attendees were very engaged, and the discussions were lively and informative.
