Top Federal IT Contracts to Watch for in 2017

If 2016 was the biggest year for federal IT contracts in a decade, 2017 might well be the most competitive.
On the backs of several high-ceiling governmentwide contracting vehicles, approximately $200 billion in IT contracts hit the street last calendar year, spread across 300 various opportunities, according to the contracting experts at Deltek.
Two of those opportunities—the General Services Administration’s Alliant 2 and Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions—had a collective ceiling of more than $100 billion, but those types of opportunities don’t come around often.
This year will offer more contracting opportunities valued at far less than the number of contracts that went out to bid in 2016.
Deltek’s data suggests industry will be able to compete on approximately 1,400 federal IT opportunities this year valued at approximately $100 billion—or about half of last year’s total.
“Those large contracting vehicles are cyclical, and contractors have to watch the cycle of when they end and when re-competition begins,” said Jennifer Sakole, research manager at Herndon, Virginia-based Deltek. “Last year was a big year for that. This year, it’s just more your regular opportunities.” READ MORE….
