The Structure and Dynamics of the U.S. Federal Professional Services Industrial Base, 1995-2005
May 1, 2007
The macro trends driving the professional services industry over the past decade extended into 2005 and 2006. There is a continuing and growing reliance on the private sector for a wide range of professional and support services by the U.S. government. For a third year in a row, providing professional services to the federal government has represented a larger market than the selling of hardware to the government. What has changed in the past year is a growing awareness of the industry’s magnitude and importance on the part of policymakers and the emergence of significant policy issues as the industry develops.
