Is your 2019 outlook bright? Take this survey and tell us

As 2019 gets underway, we are asking our Washington Technology readers a simple question: How do you feel about the direction of the market?

That means it's time for our annual WT Contractor Confidence Index report, where we take the pulse of the market.

But we can’t do it without your help. Click here to take the short survey. All of your answers are kept confidential. We’ll report out the aggregated results in a WT Insider Report in early February.

For the 2019 survey, we ask a core set of questions to capture the sentiment of the market. We’ll compare these results to previous years and calculate the Contractor Confidence Index Number.

At the start of 2018, the Index stood at 122.1 to reflect the high expectations contractors had in the market place. It was the highest ranking we had seen since we started the Contractor Confidence Index in 2015.

Our core set of questions covers items such as growth expectations, investments, whether the market is headed in a positive or negative direction, hiring expectations and job satisfaction.

A second set of questions will look at specific technology areas and whether they high priorities for government customers. We also ask a deeper set of questions around IT modernization efforts and expectations.

The end result is a report that offers unique insights into the market and industry expectations for the next year.

Click here to take the survey now or look for some of the promotional emails we’ll send over the next week or so.

The survey results will also play an important role in an upcoming WT event where we’ll go into more detail on winning strategies and challenges for 2019. Stay tuned for more details on that event.

And if you haven’t clicked on the survey yet, here is that link one more time.
