Executive Mosaic is glad to announced that Kevin Plexico, senior vice president of Information Solutions for Deltek, has received a 2021 Wash100 Award for his leadership and commitment to the government contracting (GovCon) sector and his vision to recognize federal contracting opportunities and the potential shifts to emphasize our nation’s adoption of the latest emerging technologies influencing the federal sector as a whole.
This marks the second consecutive year that Plexico has earned a Wash100 Award. Previously, he secured the highest honor in all of GovCon in 2020 for leading Deltek’s team of GovCon analysts and managing GovWin.
“Thank you for this recognition, it’s an honor to be amongst such a distinguished group of professionals and friends,” Plexico said in a statement made in Feb. 2021. “2020 has been a trying year, though through innovation and the strength of the GovCon community, I’ve seen extraordinary growth and resilience. It’s a privilege to work with such talented people in the government market and I’m excited for the future.”

As 2020 came to a close, Plexico predicted that the Biden administration would be offering a shift in budget priorities that would create additional contracting opportunities, especially in the healthcare and emerging technology areas.
The Deltek executive advised vendors to keep themselves abreast of the policy agenda in the next administration, which he expects to prioritize contract oversight for government spending transparency efforts.
Plexico advocated that freeing up money and investing it into leading technologies such as unmanned systems, cybersecurity and artificial intelligence would provide more to the federal sector than the traditional defense areas.
In addition, Deltek released a report in Oct. 2020 showcasing that accelerated adoption of cloud-based capabilities and sound data management by federal agencies would be a few of the most notable technical trends to watch as 2021 rolls on.
In addition to leading the GovWin IQ team at Deltek, Plexico also leads Deltek’s Specification Content and Specification Writing Services teams of architects, engineers, and editorial professionals. Their efforts deliver MasterSpec – a product of The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the premier master guide construction specification content in the U.S. – as well as Product MasterSpec, and SpecText.
“Kevin Plexico has distinguished himself as the ‘expert’s expert’ and a ‘GovCon Expert’ of government contracting opportunity research, assessment, management, discovery, pricing, partnering and in-depth vehicle knowledge,” said Jim Garrettson, CEO of Executive Mosaic and founder of the Wash100 Award.
“Kevin has dedicated his career to the GovCon industry with more than a quarter of a century spent from the trenches to the executive suite. Kevin has helped Deltek dominate the contract services space and is an engine of innovation and improvement to keep the company out in front,” Garrettson added.
