Deltek had become known for back-office accounting solutions but in recent years acquired companies to expand its services to include federal IT analysis. In 2010, Deltek acquired Input, a market research firm, for $60 million, and a year later acquired Input’s main competitor, Fedsources and the Washington Management Group.


“Over the past seven years, we have successfully executed our long-term plans for Deltek to enter new markets, grow internationally, and expand our industry-leading solutions for project-based companies,” said Kevin Parker, Deltek’s president, CEO and chairman of the board, in a statement.
