Customers from far and wide

One thing I like about this issue's
cover story is that it makes the
point that our government isn't
only in Washington.

Important work is being done in
cities and counties across the country.
From rural areas with a large military
base to major metropolitan areas, the
top 25 cities with government customers
are geographically and demographically
diverse. For contractors
looking to expand their business, we
believe this issue is a good place to start.

Our story gives a snapshot of some of the top 25 cities. Data on
all of them, including their major government customers, is available
online at http://www.washingtontechnology.com.

We're also trying something
new on our Web site. FortiusOne,
an Arlington, Va., mapping company,
has taken the raw data,
which includes more than 200
counties and cities, and created a
map showing the hot spots of
government nationwide.

Ideally, we want this issue to grow into a continuing resource
that's useful for readers.

But we need your help. Tell us what you think we missed. Other
than the major government customers in each city, what information
are you looking for? Send your thoughts and suggestions to
nwakeman@1105govinfo.com.

Also in this issue, Michael Hardy presents a piece that looks
ahead to 2008. Things will be tight, but there are bright spots.
Contractors will need to be patient, flexible and determined.

We also explore data-mining initiatives at the Homeland Security
Department and data center management trends across government.

In our Emerging Technology section, we have a story that
examines how agencies can use electronic forms to better manage
their business processes.

As always, we look forward to your feedback.
