Nash & Cibinic eSeries

CCH has taken five of the most popular books from the George Washington University Law School's Government Contracts Program lineup and converted the text into an interactive reference. Nationally acclaimed experts and GWU Professors Emeritus Ralph C. Nash, Jr. and John Cibinic, Jr. wrote the four anchor texts. Two complimentary texts provide referencing support.
