Key Findings

The report explores the federal IT services market environment and expected changes that will impact service providers, systems integrators, and federal contractors over the next five years. The report examines market catalysts, market forecasts and predictions, and agency environments.

Deltek believes the market will grow over the next two years and then contract in the out-years reacting to federal technology priorities, administrative policy initiatives, and acquisition reform efforts:

  • Data center consolidation, cybersecurity, and migration to cloud computing help stabilize and grow the IT services sector in the short term.
  • In the long term, the market is expected to soften as cloud gains momentum and consolidated infrastructures require less integration and customization services.
  • Mandates to cut services contract spending and continued scrutiny of services contract inventories are projected to cause an overall 8% decline in IT services spending over the forecast period.
