NCMA is currently accepting submissions for the 8th Annual Macfarlan Excellence in Contract Management Research and Writing Program. This program calls for papers in one of three categories: graduate research, professional research, and undergraduate. All papers must be received by January 15, 2014.

Consider submitting a graduate or undergraduate paper. This program is an excellent opportunity to get your name and paper published in an NCMA publication, as well as a nice monetary award. Good luck!
