Buyer's Guide 2.0

For years, Federal Computer
Week has put together buyers’
guides. These guides contain
information about how to
buy the goods and services
agencies use and which contracts
carry specific goods and
services.

This year, we are trying
something different. Rather than
publish all types of charts and
graphs, we are placing that data
online. That information, available
by visiting www.fcw.com/
specials/buyersguide, contains
specific data on contracts, including
the vendors on a wide variety of contracts
and the products and services
they provide.

In print, we have combined information
about governmentwide acquisition
contracts and small-business
requirements.

We have a story about the world of
GWACs, which seems to be entering a
period of evolution. Where do
these contracts now stand?
And what do the changes
mean for how agencies buy
goods and services?

We then have a series of
frequently asked questions
about agency small-business
requirements. We look at
those requirements from three
different perspectives: what
questions agencies need to be
asking, what questions small
businesses need to be asking,
and what questions medium
and large businesses need to be
asking.

There is much more information
available online at www.fcw.com/
specials/buyersguide.
