The look and feel of Government Contracting Wire, or GovCon Wire, recently changed, but its mission remains the same: stay ahead of the most significant developments in government contracting and capture them from the GovCon executive perspective.
GovCon Wire helps drive Executive Mosaic’s coverage of the business of government contracting as a real-time avenue for the latest executive appointments, contract awards and mergers and acquisitions.
Executive Mosaic derives its name from its approach to contracting, where its news properties form a mosaic of detailed insight, news and executive analysis on each facet of the contracting industry, both private and public sector.
For more on the role GovCon Wire plays in EM’s cross-media portfolio, check out Executive Mosaic’s home page.
On the new site, readers can easily share articles via email and social media platforms, have direct access to EM’s newsletters and distribution network and a portal to EM’s YouTube channel, which adds context and character to events shaping the industry.
In a typical example of GovCon Wire’s forward lean, just as companies were settling into the C4ISR domain, the U.S. Navy awarded seven companies spots on a potential $900 million contract for capabilities in C5ISR.
The fifth “C” in C5ISR adds combat systems to the command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance functions of C4ISR.
In other pressing developments in the M&A space, GovCon Wire covered DigitalGlobe and GeoEye agreement to combine forces in a $900 million cash-and-stock merger, as the companies aim to generate more commercial and international revenue and depend less on revenue from the U.S. government.
Another M&A stalwart who continues to add capabilities in growth sectors whose budgets are growing, Arlington, Va.-based CACI International embarked on an acquisition spree in the healthcare and data analytics sectors.
CACI values the federal healthcare market at $33.5 billion and gained prime positions on contract vehicles both IDL and Emergint hold with Department of Health and Human Services agencies.
GovCon Wire is the home of the GovCon Daily, where Executive Mosaic digests the most significant stories, profiles and interviews from across its media properties each day.
