The top 20 federal opportunities for the 2015 federal fiscal year offer $220.3 billion in total contract value, representing the highest value of the past five fiscal years; a continued increase from a low of $92.2 billion in fiscal 2013; and a $59.6 billion increase over the top 20 combined contract value of $160.7 billion in fiscal 2014.
Information Technology opportunities total $161.5 billion, representing 73 percent of the top 20 total contract value, a shift from last year when professional services opportunities dominated.
Driving the increase in IT value are several large follow-on contract programs expected to be solicited this year. Follow-on opportunities account for 99 percent of the value in the top 20 opportunities.
The split between this year’s defense and civilian top 20 opportunities is the most even of the past five years — essentially 50/50, with near-even values and 10 opportunities each.
