Harold Urman and Gwen Uman face a special kind of Y2K stress: A two-year federal contract that has been the mainstay of their research consulting firm's business is coming to an end Dec. 31. Planning ahead, allocating resources to marketing and capitalizing on their contacts are all tactics they've used to smooth the transition. Urman was interviewed by freelance writer Karen E. Klein. Gwen and I met and formed a partnership while we were both graduate students at USC.
