“Deltek has taken a commanding lead as the authority and is recognized as THE reliable source in the GovCon industry. No one more visibly supports that market lead than Kevin Plexico who is not only a GovConExpert but also is one of the most recognizable figures in our industry,” said Jim Garrettson, CEO of Executive Mosaic and founder of the Wash100 Award.
Most recently, Kevin Plexico discussed the major improvements that government contractors and their respective organizations have made to combat the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic with his latest GovCon Expert article in Jan. 2022.
Plexico provided a look into how the GovCon industry will be impacted in the coming year as the challenges involving new funding sources in the sector, the expansion of compliance requirements, an increased focus on small business contractors as well as the continuation of contract consolidation.
“Many of the lessons learned in the last year, such as the ability to lean into digital solutions and find business leads in new ways, will remain just as important as they were in 2021,” Plexico explained. “Government contractors who take the time to understand these four key trends listed above, and incorporate their learnings into their business development strategies, will be best positioned to set themselves up for success in 2022.”
Back in Oct. 2021, GovCon Expert Kevin Plexico also previewed the upcoming federal and contract opportunities in the government contracting market for the next fiscal year, which included professional services, federal set-aside, unrestricted federal opportunities.
According to a Deltek Clarity study at the time, Plexico reported that more than half of the government firms surveyed indicate that adding more business development resources is a top priority. As much as 70 percent of those who were surveyed believed that government sales will increase, especially in the professional services, aerospace and defense, healthcare and AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) areas.
“Whether or not one of these top opportunities fits into your business development plan for FY 2022, the same challenges apply in order to grow your government sales,” Plexico advocated. “This study highlights two of the most common challenges government contractors face today: increased competition and lack of business development resources. It’s a tale as old as time, businesses need to do more with less.”
In addition, Plexico also spoke with ExecutiveBiz in July for an Executive Spotlight interview shortly after the cancellation of the $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract. During the interview, Plexico discussed the impact the cancellation would have across the federal landscape, the positive developments and future opportunities for cloud services.
