Our latest, hōrd 2.0, has way more data than our initial release. We spent the last six months building a completely new approach for consuming, processing, and making sense of government data from multiple sources. The iPhone app now provides insight and capability not available anywhere else. Our efforts have also given us pretty robust visibility into how the government behaves and where it allocates its resources. So we thought we'd share.

This post is the first in the Govtribe Agency Insight series. Our purpose is to find some signal in all that noisy data, and to provide some clear, interesting, and maybe even useful information about the world of federal government contracting.

We thought a good place to start, with just over a month left in fiscal year 2013, was a look back at what's been happening since October 1, 2012.

[Update 9/23/2013: We have made a correction to the "Activity by Company" section. We incorrectly stated that consortium Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC, which won a $22.7 billion nuclear facilities contract, is led by Babcock and Wilcox Co. In fact, it is led by Lockheed Martin and Bechtel. Babcock and Wilcox Co. leads another consortium - Nuclear Production Partners, LLC - which is protesting the award of this contract. Thanks to the reader who pointed out our error.]
