Positioning for 2017:
Competitive Outlook in Defense and Civilian Agencies 

As the last quarter of the year comes to a close, we look to the beginning of FY17. This analysis profiles spending behavior for agencies that obligate the largest share of their annual funds in the first quarter after taking stock in how FY16 will conclude.

Highlights Include:

  • Agencies that rush to spend at the end of the fiscal year are distinct from those that start the year strong.
  • Agencies obligate funds for core mission needs in Q1.
  • Army and Navy are the biggest Q4 spenders amongst defense agencies.
  • The Department of the Treasury and the Department of Justice account for more than a third of expiring opportunities.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
