President-Elect Trump ran on a platform of comprehensive Federal agency reform. For the Trump administration to make good on its campaign pledges to radically reform the government, agencies will have to reprogram dollars from some current programs. Reform is dependent on the ability of Federal agencies to redirect existing resources to fulfill new priorities. Govini’s newest Analytic Report - Trump’s Swamp: The Reprogramming Potential for Agencies and Contractors in 2017 - reveals which agencies and contractors are best positioned for the disruption, and which are most at risk. All registered participants will get a FREE copy of the report (a $5000 value).
Govini will also discuss its current Federal Scorecard. Utilizing more than 6,000 data points, the Scorecard is a powerful market intelligence resource creating a provocative view into the Federal procurement landscape. The Federal Scorecard highlights agency spending trends, including a contracting overview, product and service spend, contract vehicle usage and set-aside performance.
Speaker: Chris Taylor, CEO, Govini
