Steve is right that “…specialty software providers are solving this challenge for government.” There are a number of commercial software providers who currently compete successfully to provide electronic acquisition and procurement management solutions in the federal market space. All are adept at satisfying federal requirements and all deserve fair opportunity for competing to satisfy agency requirements. By the way, small business is also included in this line up. Good luck with any market research efforts and feel free to engage. Cheers.
