The Ongoing Impact of COVID-19 and its Impact on Federal Government Contracting

One of the topics most shaping this election cycle has been the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic along with the depth and breadth of the federal government’s response. For the foreseeable future, federal agencies will continue to require significant support from vendors to aid in the response to the coronavirus by providing necessary products and services, from healthcare materials to information technology solutions to cleaning supplies.

GovWin has continued to monitor the government’s response, and in a recent session hosted at Deltek Insight, Deltek’s Kevin Plexico spoke about the current environment for government contractors at the federal level and what to expect in the next several years.
