GovConJudicata Weekly Debrief (6/1–5)

This week's Weekly Debrief covers IT modernization, the DoD/CMMC-AB MOU, a ransomware hits a Maryland defense contractor, IRS workforce returning, DoD turning to gaming developers for training, and SOCOM's new PEO for software/AI.

Banking Journal reported that SBA blocked use of robotic processing automation for loan applications because of the burden they put on E-Tran."
