Federal Government Contracts Now Available in Texas

Government Contracts in TexasThe Lone Star State received the third largest percentage of contracting dollars awarded by the US Federal Government in the nation during fiscal year 2011.  This worked out to just under $31 billion spent on a total of 118,721 contract awards.    The top five recipients of the most government contract awards in the state were Powers Industrial Equipment LTD, Dell Inc, Textron Inc, National Industries for the Blind and Labatt Institutional Supply Company Inc.

Texas is a good place for engineering and aircraft manufacturing contractors; the top five principal NAICS codes according to contracting dollars spent were Aircraft Manufacturing, Guided Missile and Space Vehicle Manufacturing, Other Aircraft Parts and Auxiliary Equipment Manufacturing, Research and Development in the Physical Engineering and Life Sciences and Engineering Services.  Out of all the federal contracts awarded in Texas, over 48% were designated as “Not Competed”.  This means over $15 billion in contracting dollars were awarded without being put out for bid.  This illustrates the necessity for vendors to build relationships with contracting officers and build their brand if they don’t want to miss out on nearly half of all the government contracting opportunities available in Texas!
