March 17, 2022 | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Bloomberg Government highlights the largest government-wide acquisition contracts and multiple award contracts opening doors for federal contractors to grow and win IT, cloud, and cyber modernization work. We will focus on opportunities with an active or imminent request for proposal. Our team of analysts will also cover what to look for when searching for procurement opportunities funded by last year’s infrastructure law.

Gain business intelligence into:

  • Dept. of State’s Evolve IT Services IDIQ, GSA’s Polaris GWAC, GSA’s Cloud BPA
  • Evaluate expiring contracts and tasks for re-compete and follow-on potential
