The SCIIF team and some of our partners will venture to North Central Pennsylvania to facilitate a half-day education and training program on May 7th, hosted by the good folks at North Central PTAC. After the Pre-Workshop Breakfast, hosted and sponsored by my friend Ed DeLisle, Principal and Chair of the Government Contracting Group at Offit Kurman (who is hosting and sponsoring several of our Ethical Stalking for Government Contractors 2-Day Bootcamps this year), we'll offer up a comprehensive discussion called the Finding and Winning Simplified Acquisitions Workshop.
This blog series is dedicated to providing information about spending where Simplified Acquisitions are the purchase method and Pennsylvania is the place of performance.
During the most recently completed federal fiscal year, 37 departments obligated $850M via Simplified Acquisition purchases where Pennsylvania was the place of performance. Seventeen of those agencies made total obligations of $1M or more. The top 10 contracting departments based on total obligations are:
The spending by these 10 agencies in PA represented $822M of the $850M obligated during fiscal year 2018. It should be no surprise that the Department of Defense represents 78% of that total spend.
Next up, we'll look at some of the top organizations within those agencies responsible for the spend. Stay tuned!
