ExecutiveGov Extends EM’s GovCon Coverage ‘Mosaic’ To Public Sector

EgovLogoExecutive Mosaic’s portfolio of websites cover every facet of government contracting in the private sector from the executive’s point of view, ranging from executive movements to business activity.

EM’s approach extends to covering the customer, as ExecutiveGov fulfills the same mission for the public sector by covering the business of government and the executives who serve the country.

EGov, the site’s nickname used by readers and EM staff, hones its lens on the budget environment and the potential impacts sequestration could have on how the government operates.

Recently, EGov covered a directive from Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter that orders prior review of any contract awards worth at least $500 billion if they pertain to research and development and production.

The undersecretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics will be responsible for reviewing those contracts and Pentagon components must complete reviews of contracts and studies by Feb. 15.

Government agencies and businesses have a new avenue to track information technology contract spending as the General Services Administration launched a new dashboard in November 2012 for users to view spending data on governmentwide acquisition vehicles.

Mary Davie, then-acting commissioner for GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, said small businesses have long-desired for such a system they can use to evaluate marketing opportunities.

EGov also publishes original profiles of the public servants at the forefront of agencies such as Frank Kendall, the Pentagon’s acquisition undersecretary and chief weapons buyer.

Kendall’s four-decade career encompasses executive positions at both the Pentagon and at GovCon firms such as Raytheon, where he led internal research and development.
