Department of Homeland Security Strategic Outlook for 2020

As the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) focuses on meeting its goals of ensuring a homeland that is safe, secure and resilient against terrorism and other hazards, it must lean on private contractors to supply the goods and services it needs to get the job done. GovWin research analysts Tina Barton and John Slye have prepared this on-demand DHS webinar for prospective contractors with the Department of Homeland Security to build their sales plans for FY 2020.

“The HHS Market offers more than 1,000 opportunities, with average annual contract obligations (based on a five-year average) of $16.5B.”

Department of Health and Human Services Contracts and Outlook for 2020

The HHS (Department of Health and Human Services) is another government section gearing up for the coming year. As the department prepares to better use data to help improve the nation’s health and its own internal operations, it has identified some preferred contract vehicles and contractors. Join this HHS webinar from GovWin analysts Angie Petty and Shadi Shakibai to learn about top HHS spending trends, potential project leads and future areas of contracting opportunity.

“The discretionary budget for 2020 allocates funds to fight the opioid epidemic, improve mental health, support health research and fight childhood cancer.”

A Tactical Roadmap for Modernizing Indian Health Service IT

Last month the Indian Health Service (IHS) released two new reports outlining their strategy to modernize and innovate with their health IT services. GovWin research analyst Angie Petty explored some of the specific recommendations these reports offered, and explained some of the largest implications for government contractors.

“Modernization of the IHS HIT environment will be a multi-year process requiring hardware, software and IT services from the federal contractor community.”

Intelligence Community Calls for More Cloud Services Investment

In its recently-released strategic plan to increase investment in cloud services in the intelligence community, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) signaled its intent to grow its global cloud capabilities while streamlining the procurement process. GovWin research analyst Christine Fritsch wrote about the intelligence community’s approach to cloud spending and some of the best practices for contractors to consider.

 “The IC’s cloud strategic plan calls for secure, interoperable and accessible cloud computing capabilities and promotes investment in multiple cloud vendors for enhanced services.”

How Major Acquisitions in Federal Government are Transforming

GovWin research analyst Marjorie Baker wrote about a recent event held by the Association for Federal Information Resources Management (AFFIRM) that discussed different ways the federal procurement process is evolving to meet the government’s growing needs, including areas in which procurement officials are aiming to improve to better meet the needs of private vendors.

“In order to strategically address the problems for 2020 and beyond, the federal procurement process is innovating by incorporating non-traditional methods such as OTAs, adopting Category Management, utilizing emerging technologies such as AI and cloud services, and implementing personnel reform.”
