Deltek recently hosted a webinar highlighting how to best do business with the Navy, including updates to the agency’s organizational structure, the upcoming budget outlook, and top procurement and contract spending trends. That presentation is available for all to download and view on demand.

Hosted by Deltek Advisory Research Analyst John Slye and Research Analyst Kara Crowe, the webinar provides a look at some of the biggest challenges facing the Navy in terms of government contracting for the remainder of 2018 and beyond, by leveraging the valuable market intelligence that GovWin IQ offers. It also provides access to valuable resources, such as solution guides for both federal and SLED (state and local) government contractors.

Two of the key management challenges facing the Navy are maintaining stable funding (a key for many federal government agencies) and the need to maintain balance and scalability across various naval capability areas, to avoid over-investing in one area while not funding one area adequately. Prospective vendors would do well to keep each of these challenges in mind.

Here are two of the strategic contracting goals for the Navy that the webinar highlights:

  • Building a larger fleet of 355 ships, 15% above the previous goal of 308
  • Investing in more modern technologies, including directed energy, lasers, and AI (artificial intelligence)

Outside of these opportunities, the Navy have several specific priorities when it comes to contracting in FY 2019 and beyond. The agency as a whole offers a great deal of potential business to federal government contractors.

One recent example was a tracked opportunity for “Boat Preventative Maintenance and Repairs” released by the Naval Supply Systems Command, specifically the Fleet Logistics Center in Norfolk.
