Top 10 Trends in Government Procurement and Tips on How to Cope With Them

Marina Goren
President/CEO, Smart BD Consulting


Driven by today’s shrinking budgets, the Federal Government procurement trends are vastly different from the previous years.  In order to survive in this environment, companies have to drastically adapt their own capture and proposal development strategies to continue producing winning proposals.  This presentation discusses Top 10 Challenges in Today’s Environment and provides actionable tools and techniques to overcome them: 1. Competing in the "LPTA world” 2. FFP cost models – with a lack of workload data 3. Pressure to "do more with less” 4. A shift to IDIQ vehicles 5. Shorter proposal timelines 6. More content with smaller page budgets 7. Dealing with customers’ closed door policy 8. Anti-incumbent world 9. Small-business friendly environment 10. An army of proposal consultants – very few good ones. This presentation will offer innovative techniques backed by real-life examples to address these challenges.
