What the Industry is Saying:

See what your government contracting peers and industry thought leaders are saying about navigating current contracting market conditions, such as:

“I think inflation is still having a bigger impact than expected this year. The cost of doing business isn't getting any less. It's getting more.. It's getting more.”

Teresa Moon, Director of Business Development, Parabilis

“Government contracting is a very unpredictable market and trying to stay on top of the changing policies, regulations, and executive orders is extremely difficult. Further, it is even more challenging to understand how those updated executive orders or regulations apply to your business, as they often have a downstream effect in how you pursue federal business.”

Jeff Shen President, Red Team Consulting

“The more information you have on the contracts you're going after and the agencies you want to work with, the better off you're going to be, especially within a U.S. Federal continuing budget resolution environment.”

Mark Amtower, founding partner of Amtower & Company
