In our most recent federal analysis you can find tips on how federal government agencies are continuing to spend to combat the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, including which agencies will have contracting dollars available and which industries may see more opportunities.

Coronavirus Spending by the US State Department and Department of Homeland Security

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to reverberate across every facet of the economy, GovWin has continued to assist government contractors with their ability to navigate the government response to the coronavirus by sharing the latest federal government contracting analysis and contracting opportunities.

GovWin has recently released specific spending analysis for two key federal departments, the US State Department and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Research Analyst John Slye explores the ways in which the U.S. Department of State has spent nearly $98 million to date on COVID-19 response activities, and demonstrates the two industry segments that are seeing the most spending.

And this article takes a specific look at the Department of Homeland Security’s spending on activity related to COVID-19. While immediate response spending has tapered off since April, there are still many areas that are seeing significant numbers of contracting dollars.

Businesses can look to GovWin for additional resources that help them navigate the government contracting market during the coronavirus outbreak. Currently available for viewing is an on-demand webinar, featuring Deltek’s Senior Vice President of Information Solutions Kevin Plexico and Director of Federal Market Analysis Deniece Peterson, which covers the federal government’s response efforts in a number of areas:

Understanding the Road to CIO-SP4 for Government Contractors

The Chief Information Officer-Solutions and Partners 4 (CIO-SP4) contract vehicle is one of the biggest and broadest in the federal technology space. In this on-demand CIO-SP4 webinar, Deltek’s Senior Director of Research Carey Webster partnered with two experts from public accounting and consulting firm Baker Tilly, Principal Jeff Clayton and Senior Manager Leo Alvarez, to make sense of this key IT contract vehicle.

“As a popular choice for complex information technology services, CIO-SP4 promises to continue to be a prominent contract vehicle for federal buyers well into the future – covering a wide breadth of services from cybersecurity and cloud computing to healthcare IT. ”
