Report: Contracting Picture Clears Up for 2Q as FY '12 Budgets Settle - top government contractors - best government contracting eventPresident Obama recently signed two appropriations bills that fund agencies throughout the entire 2012 fiscal year. This is a stark contrast from the last several months when federal agencies operated under a series of short-term continuing resolutions.

Despite operating without set budgets, agencies awarded more than $45 million in contracts in the first quarter of FY 2012, Kevin Plexico wrote in a Washington Post article.

Deltek‘s vice president of federal information solutions expects more contracts to be awarded as the second fiscal quarter approaches. Plexico outlined significant contracts awarded during the first quarter and previewed upcoming awards for the second quarter.

Significant contracts in first quarter of FY 2012:

The General Services Administration awarded more than 20 contracts totaling $5 billion for telecommunications infrastructure equipment and services.

The Air Combat Command dished out nearly 30 contracts under a $4.7 billion contract vehicle intended to support the command’s policy development.

The Office of Personnel Management awarded CACI International a prime spot on OPM’s $2.5 billion contract for background investigation fieldwork services.

The Naval Air Systems command awarded a total of $2 billion for Navy training systems.

Significant contracts coming in the second quarter of FY 2012:

According to Plexico, Deltek has identified more than 3,500 solicitations totaling $325 billion planned for the upcoming year.

The U.S. Air Force will likely solicit bids for work on a $20 billion training systems acquisition Program.

The U.S. Army is gearing up to solicit logistics related services through the $23 billion EAGLE program.

The Army also is planning a $5 billion solicitation for information technology equipment and related services under the ITES 3H program.

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command is looking to complete a $16 billion acquisition of secure handled radio systems.

The Department of Homeland Security seems ready to release its $2 billion FirstSource 2 solicitation for software, IT equipment and related services.

The Navy is looking for solicitations of up to $10 billion for its Next Generation Enterprise Network.
