Tom Davis, a former congressman of Virginia, predicts a Republican-controlled Congress may push for new measures that could help government contracting firms, GovExec reported Friday.
Charles Clark writes Davis and several industry analysts provided their post-election analyses during a Professional Services Council-sponsored panel discussion Friday.
Davis said Republicans appear to be “market-oriented” and willing to bring back regular order in the legislative process, according to GovExec.
“I think members will give the new majority a chance to take advantage of a full-year omnibus spending bill,” Jim Dyer, a principal at the Podesta Group, told forum audience.
GovExec reports Alan Chvotkin, executive vice president of the Professional Services Council, expects the next Congress to seek changes in the process for granting security clearance for federal job applicants and contractor personnel.
