Where the customers are

For a map showing the hot spots of government customers across the country, click here.

The map was created for Washington Technology by FortiusOne and GeoCommons, an Arlington, Va., mapping company.

A breakdown of the top 25 cities, including their major government customers,
is available online. Also, FortiusOne and its GeoCommons unit in Arlington, Va.,
used the data from more than 200 cities and counties listed by the Bureau of
Economic Analysis to create a map showing where the hot spots for government
customers are across the country.

Start counting your frequent flier miles because our
rankings of the top 25 cities by the number of government
employees will have you going from the beaches
of Miami to the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest
and everywhere in between.

We did not rank the Washington area because
it is the runaway No. 1, but the rankings do show
the broad scope of the services the government
provides and the related business opportunities for

San Diego, for example, is not only a critical center
of activity for the Navy and Marine Corps but also
an important hub for the General Services
Administration. Miami is an important city for the
Homeland Security Department and the Federal
Aviation Administration.

Military facilities gave places such as Jacksonville,
N.C., and Kitsap, Wash., a high profile on the list,
which is based on data from the Bureau of Economic

But wherever government jobs are, there are contractors
supporting them. The communities we profiled
reported the presence of some of the largest government
contractors in the market and opportunities
for small and midsize companies and start-ups.
Our rankings and profiles, coupled with more
information at our Web site, should serve as a road
map to where the customers are.
