August 5, 2014 — This week on “Off the Shelf”, Bill Gormley, president of the Gormley Group, Cameron Leuthy, senior budget analyst for Bloomberg Government, and Miguel Garrido, quantitative analyst for Bloomberg Government, dissect the end of fiscal year budget profile — who has funding and where it will be obligated!
Gormley provides insights and recommendations regarding key competitive market strategies for companies responding to the fourth quarter surge in buying.
Leuthy provides analysis of fourth quarter funding availability. He also shares insights into anticipated funding profiles for the first quarter of FY 15.
In addition, Garrido analyzes historical buying patterns and obligations under multiple award contracts during the fourth quarter and what it means for contractors.
The data show that the streamlined capabilities of multiple award contracts make them the government procurement tool of choice in meeting fourth quarter acquisition deadlines.
