About Federal Budget IQ

Federal Budget IQ’s best in class team of experienced professionals takes the mystery out of the federal budget and appropriations process with data-driven forecasts and original research to help executives evaluate opportunities and make informed strategic decisions to grow their public sector business. For decades, federal procurement spending increased each year. The key to success in that environment was getting on the escalator. The world has changed. According to the U.S. Treasury, total federal procurement spending has dropped 12% since FY11. Over the next 5 years, legal spending caps fall $350 billion short of the levels needed to maintain current federal operations. In today’s market, executives need strategies that manage risk, anticipate emerging trends and focus resources on the most promising opportunities. We have worked with blue-chip clients in key sectors and the results are clear. Using Federal Budget IQ improves public sector sales performance.
