Deltek has published a report stating that agencies’ fiscal 2015 spending request figures indicate a growth in programmatic efforts throughout the government.
The “FY 2015 Federal Budget Request: Challenges and Opportunities” report offers a look at contractor-addressable budgets and seeks to help industry plan strategies for business development, Deltek said Tuesday.
President Barack Obama’s budget proposal includes $55 billion in additional investments to support defense, research and development, employment, citizen services, infrastructure and education programs.
Deltek says that mandatory information technology rules are driving agencies to prioritize cloud computing, analytics, mobility and C4ISR modernization.
“Tightening budgets simply mean that agencies must focus on the ‘must have’ investments, ” John Slye, Deltek advisory research analyst.
The Pentagon continues work to sustain readiness programs that aim to address anti-access/area-denial challenges and expand military installation infrastructures in the Asia-Pacific, according to Deltek.
“Agencies are being forced to become more cost-efficient and effective, ” Slye added.
“Contractors that can help agencies accomplish this – and can prove it – have a distinct advantage in this market.”
