3. The need for cybersecurity professionals, acquisition professionals, and program/project management professionals will become more acute. Potential exists for an increase in retirement-eligible government employees, especially if there is turn in the economy.

2. Agencies will be forced into greater cross-collaboration, and leveraging existing investments. The federal government will work even more as an “enterprise” out of necessity.
