EAGLE spending spree expected

Government contractors should expect a fourth quarter "spending spree" through the Homeland Security Department primary information technology contracting vehicle, asserts market research firm Input Inc., as reported on the NextGov Web site.

According to Input's report, "DHS' EAGLE Builds Momentum," DHS' Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge contracts, awarded in 2006 are popular year-round. But the last quarter of fiscal 2007 was particularly lucrative, and a similar spike is likely this year.

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, spending on EAGLE skyrocketed to $2.4 billion, almost quadruple the level from the previous three quarters combined. The jump was driven in part by two large task order contracts, but even when those contracts are not taken into account, fourth quarter fiscal 2007 spending was more than half of the total spending that year.

Input expects fourth quarter EAGLE spending to be higher in fiscal 2008 than it was in fiscal 2007.
