Entering the Federal Contracting Market

Alan Birchler De Allende / Jun 29, 2016

This week we discuss a few more data trends relating to first-time awardees between FY 2013 and FY 2015. First-time contracts have grown over the last few years despite the contraction of the overall market. This is a nice silver lining on recent trends in the government contracting space indicating that new, small firms still have opportunity despite the overall decrease in spending and total new contract awards overall.

As many in the government sector know, the 2013 government shutdown and subsequent triggering of the sequestration negatively impacted the government contracting market. The extent of the impact has been difficult to discern, but with three years of data we're starting to make sense of the damage.

The (Fiscal Year) End is Nigh

Marc Vogtman / Jul 6, 2015

I hope everyone in government contracting land had a nice holiday weekend. Now it’s time to get to work. Because we project that about 42,000 new solicitations for government contracts will be published on between now and September 30.

Getting Started with GovTribe Radar

Marc Vogtman / May 5, 2015

We're starting a series of short videos that highlight the things you can accomplish with GovTribe, and how it aligns with your work. This week, we introduce GovTribe Radar.

GovTribe deals in data. Gobs and gobs of government contract data. We use that data to provide insights into the world of federal contracting through our apps and Custom Reports.

One of the most important components of the federal contracting market is the point of contact for an opportunity. The point of contact (usually a Contracting Officer or CO) is often the only source of information about current and future contracts.
