  25. Increasing Reliance on Task Order Vehicles Source: FPDS, INPUT

  26. Squeeze on Small & Mid-Sized Firms Continues Source: FPDS, INPUT

  27. Contracting Stipulations • Requires use of the FAR • To “maximum extent possible”, federal agencies must use • Competitive procedures • Fixed-price contracts • If other approach is used, it must be posted with explanation to • Agencies can use existing contracts to execute plans • Priority given to programs that: • Can be obligated/executed quickly • Will result in high, immediate employment; • Have little schedule risk • Will be executed by contract or direct hire of temporary labor • Will complete a project phase or project

  28. Oversight & Transparency • Establishes Recovery Accountability & Transparency Board • Establishes as transparency site • Recipients (including contractors) must provide quarterly reports • Total amounts received and amounts obligated/expended • List of all projects/activities on which funds have been obligated/expended • Project name, description, completion status, • Estimate of number of jobs created, and • Detailed info on subcontracts • Extensive funds provided to IGs to support oversight • GAO has authority to examine the records or interview employees of contractor/subcontractors who receive funds

  29. Conclusions

  30. INPUT’s Take • More opportunities will be embedded within larger mandates • Requirement to act quickly could take resources away from existing work • Look for utilization of existing task order vehicles to expedite awards

  31. Recommendations • Be prepared to act quickly – many of the program require plans and/or project start within 30-120 days • Revisit your portfolio to identify complete solutions that simplify acquisitions • Energy audits and energy monitoring technologies • Electronic health records and IT security • Infrastructure providers - Look for construction projects which create new “centers” or establish new offices • Consider partnerships with state and local contractors • Many opportunities funded through S&L grants

  32. Recommendations • Vendors should focus on funding sources which already exist • Much of the funding (other than construction) targets existing programs and augments previous legislation • Keep your nose clean – extensive oversight and reporting requirements • Don’t let exuberance and desire for growth overcome common sense
