Analysis of Federal Cloud Computing, Mobile Applications, and Data Centers

The federal information technology market is one of the most dynamic and constantly-changing fields within government contracting. GovWin’s Federal Market Analysis team regularly dives deep into this market to uncover some of the key spending trends for businesses selling to the government to know. Three of the areas within IT contracting that our team has focused on recently are technology mobility, data centers, and the ever-important cloud computing market.

Below are highlights of these three reports and ways that your government contracting business can benefit.

The Risks Posed by Construction Contract Change Orders

Construction contractors will know that unforeseen changes to the scope of a project occur all the time. This is true when it comes to government jobs, as well – agencies often need to take extra care that they are spending their budget in a cost-efficient manner, which can lead to last-second changes. Research Analyst Matthew Weigelt wrote an article tackling the complicated issue of change orders, and explaining how overall contract spending on construction projects has changed, along with some of the factors that lead to contract timeframes changing.

“Contract change orders can be time-consuming, and… they can be unknown risks to companies. The government, however, has its own priorities to make sure it is allocating federal dollars wisely.”

Examining VETMACC, a Key Navy Contracting Opportunity from NAVFAC

The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) frequently uses Multiple Award Construction Contracts (MACCs) on a regional basis when seeking government vendors, as a way to speed up procurement. One of the most prominent such MACCs is the Northwest region’s VETMACC contract, a set-aside for veteran-owned businesses. Research Analyst Kara Crowe took an in-depth look at this contracting opportunity, and explained how construction businesses can benefit by targeting MACC opportunities like this one.

 “These vehicles present the government with more efficient and expeditious means to contract task orders and planned projects by utilizing already identified and vetted vendors on the vehicles. Largely, these vehicles are well utilized and sought after within the federal AEC landscape.”
