Despite Proposed Cuts, Opportunities Lay Ahead in Cybersecurity and Health Care for Contractors
According to a recent GovWin IQ study
by Deltek, spending on government IT will decrease spending from $121 billion in 2012 to $113 billion by 2017. Budget pressures and IT mandates are driving this change.
But, there is a silver lining. Cybersecurity and health IT will be growth areas, and IT cost-savings initiatives will be another area of opportunity. These include cloud computing, data center consolidation and solutions for stopping waste, fraud and abuse in government programs.
In terms of health IT, both the DoD and the Department of Veterans Affairs are rolling out
new Integrated Electronic Health Records (iEHR) programs that require support from industry.
And, if you haven’t seen the latest, our nation needs more cybersecurity support.
