JANUARY 2021 NEWSLETTER: GOVERNMENT IT SPENDING FASTEST GROWING SEGMENT IN NEW YEAR
A new year means new government budgets and information technology will see exponential allocations in fiscal 2021 and 2022 on local, state and federal levels.
Your Vendorship Inc. team tracks these trends and developments. And we’re poised to assist organizations in finding, sorting, bidding and winning bids in these key IT mandates.
Federal spending on contractor supplied IT products and services will grow from $116.6 billion in FY 2020 to $118.3 billion through FY 2022 at a compound annual growth rate of 0.7%, according to just-released data.
COVID-19 has shifted the need. And government is now more than ever supporting key policies and programs to emphasize IT modernization and investments in key technologies including:
- Digital Transformation
- System modernization
- Cloud Computing
- Artificial Intelligence
- IT workforce (staff augmentation and program implementation)
New reports indicate sustained increases in state and local government technology spending in FY 2021 and into 2022:
- $2.09 trillion (2021)
- $2.17 trillion (2022)
- $2.18 trillion (2021)
- $2.25 trillion (2022)
Additionally, the Technology Modernization Fund (TMF), authorized by the Modernizing Government Technology Act of 2017, calls for approved projects to receive phased incremental funding and technical expertise to ensure project success.
The TMF received $100 million in FY 2018 to fund modernization projects, and another $25 million in FY 2019. The President’s FY 2020 Budget requests an additional $150 million.
And while budgets are certainly tight, and the prospect of technology upgrades may seem daunting, having the right technology to allow the government to operate efficiently from anywhere ,has never been more needed. To support those efforts, CARES Act funds can be invested in certain technology upgrades to bolster necessary technology capabilities.
Vendorship Inc. has identified several CARES Act technology modernization opportunities to help government entities meet demand.
We identify those opportunities on a daily basis.
