More than $400 billion in government contracts are set to expire this year across the largest 19 federal agencies, according to a recent report by big data and analytics firm Govini.
That’s creating significant opportunities at some agencies to reorient federal programs in support of the Trump administration’s priorities, said Matt Hummer, director of analytics at the Arlington, Va.-based firm.
The report, the 2017 Federal Scorecard, is Govini’s annual ranking of government contractors and offers a granular picture of the relationship between agencies and the companies they do business with. It was produced in partnership with Government Executive Media Group.
In addition to providing an overview of contracting activity at each agency, the analysis includes a “reprogramming index” that ranks agencies according to their potential to fund new priorities, based on the number and value of expiring contracts. The key takeaway is that at some agencies with the most politically-charged missions, the administration will be able to significantly redirect agency activities through federal contracts.
