NASA’s $1 billion opportunities and a preview of the 113th

This week on BGOV’s Capital Impact show hosted by Allen Scott:

  • Aerospace Analyst Matthew Zisman examined NASA’s fiscal 2013 acquisition forecast, and delivers three new contracts valued at more than $300 million and five re-competitions worth approximately $721 million. If history repeats itself, their 2012 incumbent win rate was 47%, the ball is definitely in your court.
  • The overall makeup of the 113th Congress hasn’t changed so does that mean we’ll get more of the same out of our government? Congressional and Budget Analyst Cameron Leuthy and Chief Legislative Analyst Loren Duggan join the program to discuss just how far we fell off the cliff, Sandy relief and a look into the agenda on the hill in 2013.
