Deltek: Half of FY 2010-13 Federal IT Spending Through Task Order Vehicles

ContractA new Deltek report indicates that government agencies have spent an average of nearly 50 percent of total information technology funds through task order contract vehicles between fiscal years 2010 and 2013

Deltek said Thursday that agencies have sought to centralize their procurement functions and increase work with small business through those task order contract vehicles.

The research firm’s “Federal Information Technology Task Order Vehicle Trends” report says task order vehicles aim to present a more established scope of work and revenue streams.

“Agencies are actively working to not only increase competition and refresh their pool of industry partners, but also use recompetes as a platform for price negotiations, ” said Alex Rossino, an analyst at Deltek.

Contractors could also experience more intense competition that could lead to bid protests and process delays, Deltek says.

Deltek recommends vendors prepare for price adjustments to help achieve contracting opportunities via the vehicles.
