Other buzz from Acquisition Solutions

Aside from the FCW-GCN issue, other items from the Acquisition Solutions holiday party:

* There were rumors that GSA's Doan had put out a memo that one person described as a gag rule. Or it could be that GSA folks were just told to direct any questions through the press shop. If you have seen it or heard anything, I'd love to hear more... anonymity guaranteed, of course. cdorobek at fcw.com.

* Meanwhile, another coup for GSA: former GSA FSS CIO Ed O'Hare is returning to the agency, I'm told. O'Hare has been a vice president for Dynanet.

* Several people were quite surprised that there has not been more buzz about SBA's proposed small business rule, particularly from small businesses.

* And apparently don't hold your breath for the SARA Panel's report. We were expecting to see it... well, any day now. Apparently it will be sometime next year. I'll follow up on that Thursday.
