Summaries of Exclusive Research on the Federal Information Security, Cloud Computing, and Big Data Markets

The GovWin federal market research team is constantly examining the key markets within the federal government contracting landscape in order to help to help strategic-minded firms develop their business development efforts and evaluate the impact of recent trends on their business.

Last month, they focused some of their research on three of the most influential segments in information technology contracts coming from the federal government, which are big data, cloud computing, and cybersecurity. Free, downloadable summaries of the following reports are available for all to access:

Are GAO Protests Increasingly Successful? GovWin Research Investigates

Well-constructed bid protests can be a useful tool to use in the federal procurement process, writes GovWin Research Analyst Nathaniel Kulyk. His research examines protests filed with the US Government Accountability office (GAO), and highlights upcoming opportunities to watch, opportunities that are currently in the protest state, and bid protests filed in the last five fiscal years.

GAO bid protests filed in 2013-2017.

“Vendors need to carefully consider the merits of protests before proceeding. However, when done properly, a well-constructed protest can be a valuable tool and have a strong impact on future procurements.”

Cyber Organization Launched to Assist the Healthcare Market

In late October, the Department of Human and Health Services (HHS) launched the overhauled Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Center (HC3) to serve as a hub for healthcare information collaboration and analysis. Senior Principal Research Analyst Angie Petty explained the focus of this relaunched organization and the implications it may have for firms involved in federal government contracting.

“As HC3 builds and strengthens its resources and offerings, contractors may find opportunities to assist them with cybersecurity products and services, or to assist health sector organizations with their cybersecurity needs.”

Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZONE) and Future Endeavors

Research Analyst Samantha Davenport has put together a detailed piece of research on the HUBZone program, which was created in order to give small businesses more opportunities to compete for federal government contracts. The article provides some background on the program and highlights major lucrative HUBZone set-aside contracts to look out for in the coming year.

“With HUBZones being underutilized, it is important to pay close attention to specific prospects coming out of the government designed for these set-asides and take advantage of the perks that come with being HUBZone certified.”
