Executive Mosaic, the parent company of TheNewNewInternet, hosted a special executive-only forum two weeks ago that had leaders from different sectors share their views and insights into GovCon’s post-sequestration environment and where the market is headed.
TheNewNewInternet has published copies of presentations offered by several speakers from the Post-Sequestration Summit for reference by attendees seeking guidance on GovCon’s future trajectory.

Dr. Stephen Fuller, director of the George Mason University Center for Regional Analysis, analyzed the impact of federal spending and contractors’ business activities on the Washington area’s larger economy.
Fuller also highlighted several sectors he believes are poised to grow in down-budget environments and which jobs could see increasing numbers over the short- and long-term.
Jim McAleese, founder and principal at McAleese & Associates, offered a program-by-program perspective on where the sequester’s impacts will be felt the most and like Fuller pointed to certain areas that could see increased funding over the next decade.
McAleese also previewed the Defense Department‘s Strategic Choices and Management Review, known as the SCMR, which will outline the Pentagon’s spending priorities in a post-sequester world.
Pierre Chao, managing partner at Renaissance Strategic Partners, helped the audience take a step back and look over the entire country’s history of federal spending cycles, offering a comparison to this decade’s GovCon market.
Chao also overviewed some potential opportunities for contractors to grow international business.
TheNewNewInternet also features white papers from several of the leading technology contractors in the federal space, including one from Symantec that examines the Stuxnet worm and how goals of threats can be the most interesting.
In another paper, McAfee looked at continuing attacks against the energy and petrochemical sectors and found the tools bad actors use to carry out the assaults on enterprise networks.
Computer Sciences Corp. proposed a four-layer “security stack” intended as an integrated set of services in its white paper provided to TheNewNewInternet.
