Government Expected to Hire More Small Businesses
December 9, 2011
Small business contracting has had a pivotal year and will continue seeing significant growth rates in the federal acquisition space, said a panelist in a discussion on federal acquisition hosted by the Association for Federal Information Resources Management.
The Dec. 8 luncheon discussion on indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracting trends and techniques brought together officials from NASA, the General Services Administration, the National Institutes of Health, AAST/Technical and Management Resources, Inc.
"IDIQ contracting is very, very important, and it represents a truly significant portion of the federal marketplace" said Nancy Suslov, director of civilian business development at Technical and Management Resources, Inc. "If you're not tuned into that market, you're really missing a significant part of the marketplace."
