Why the Clarity Government Contracting Survey is Important
Because government contracting can encompass everything from large-scale projects like construction and production of military equipment, to fulfillment needs that can include research and software maintenance, there is no one-size-fits-all within this market space. What the Deltek Clarity Government Contracting Survey has surfaced in its decade of data compilation are the commonalities among the varied product and service providers serving government agencies. From large firms to two and three-seat shops, the Clarity Survey draws lines between experiences to provide both a detailed snapshot of the government contracting landscape for a given year, as well as objective benchmarking data points for businesses of all sizes.
Though completing a survey can take time out of already busy schedules, the resulting benefits can help respondents expand their knowledge base and make more informed decisions about the future of their government contracting business.
Why You Should Participate, and What to Expect
Trends simply cannot be identified without data. And, data cannot be conjured out of thin air. Relaying how you conduct your government contracting business – address day-to-day business needs and functions, measure performance, identify tools and resources, overcome challenges and compliance hurdles – is the baseline for all Clarity Government Contracting Reports. Every time a survey is completed, the industry benchmarks and key performance indicators (KPIs) become clear.
The survey collects information on:
- Business Development
- Project & Risk Management
- Financial Compliance
- Contract Management
- Human Capital Management (HCM)
- Information Technology (IT)
Respondents are not obligated to complete all nine sections of the survey. You can choose which sections to complete, based on your role within, and knowledge of, your firm’s business. Each section takes about 15 minutes to complete.
- Please report the average monthly invoice cycle and days sales outstanding for your business.
- What are the top three business development challenges facing your organization in the next 12 months?
Who Can Participate?
The Clarity Government Contracting Survey is open to firms of all sizes that attribute a portion of their annual revenue to government business, either as a prime contractor, sub-contractor or both. Hundreds of companies participate each year from the following disciplines:
- Professional Services
- Defense, Weapons, Aerospace, or Manufacturing
- Information Technology
- Research & Development or other Nonprofit, Grant-Based Work
- Operations & Maintenance
- Architecture, Engineering, Construction
- Energy, Oil & Gas, Environmental & Natural Resources
