Federal Information Technology Contracting

The GovWin research team of more than 150 federal and state, local and education (SLED) market analysts provide in-depth research reports, timely articles, webinars, presentations and consultations to help clients build business development plans and navigate the government market effectively.

Most recently, our researchers have spent time examining the federal information technology contracting space, including federal big data, cloud computing, information security and health information technology. This post also offers an inside look at the GovWin federal research team’s ongoing coverage of the federal administration transition.

2021 Federal Information Security Market Analysis

The federal information security space is made up of a variety of drivers that influence agency plans and efforts, which can impact contracting growth both negatively and positively. Understand these drivers and other key trends in this market by downloading GovWin’s Federal Information Security Market, 2020-2022 free summary report.

The report explores agency information security priorities, how they fit within agency strategic trends and how security may impact demand for IT services and commodities – and demonstrates how having information on a government agency’s technology install base can provide an edge in business development. It also outlines some of the key information security market drivers, as the image below shows.

Examining the Federal Health IT Market

Another area of the federal technology market that continues to maintain enormous relevance is federal health IT, particularly in the face of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the government’s continual response. Deltek’s Federal Health IT Market, 2020-2022 report examines how agencies are embracing health IT to meet unprecedented challenges, and forecasts that federal spending on contractor-supplied health IT products and services will grow from $7.8 billion in FY 2020 to $9.2 billion in FY 2022.

Analysis of Federal Cloud Computing Spending Plans for 2021

GovWin’s team of federal market analysts has released its deep dive into cloud computing spending plans in its recent free summary report, Federal Cloud Computing Market, 2020-2022. The report finds that the federal government’s migration to the cloud is well underway, with adoption of cloud computing technologies accelerating rapidly even before the beginning of the COVID-19 public health crisis.


"Get insights on the factors, policies and strategies shaping agency spending on cloud computing, and see cloud-related federal contracting opportunities for the purposes of strategic business development planning.”


Continuing Coverage of the Federal Administration Transition

With the election in the rear-view mirror, the federal administration transition process has begun, and with that contractors involved in federal information technology contracting – as well as those selling to other industries – need to prepare for the year ahead. GovWin’s federal research team has been providing ongoing coverage of this transition, including the on-demand FedFocus 2021 webinar which discussed the complexities of contracting during and following an election year, and this market analysis article discussing the president-elect’s position on federal technology and innovation.
