Budgets and workforce challenges drive IT Services spending
The increase in agencies’ interest in outsourcing is driven by both budget and workforce issues, as agencies grapple with declining budgets and gaps in expertise. Agencies must find strategies to continue to meet mission and operational objectives, which often means a reliance on contractor support.
"Agencies will continue to pursue solutions that deliver capabilities such as cloud computing and data center optimization," states
IT Professional Services will also be impacted by budget and workforce issues. The ongoing scrutiny of services contracting will drive agencies to continue to streamline management support and advisory services.

The picture for IT hardware and software is more challenging and will require contractors to have robust strategies for teaming and pricing to win business.

Given the budget environment, positioning will be critical. Contractors should be prepared with the information and tools necessary to respond effectively to changing acquisition strategies, consider new teaming partners, and reexamine internal processes to ensure their competitive advantage.
