Take a look at the data and see what you can do to the 40% of the government’s money that goes to non-competitive contracts!


Think that beta.sam and other government contracting databases have the answer? Tratar de nuevo. Try again.

These platforms may be the most known places to browse for opportunities, these don’t necessarily provide you 100% of the contracts in the government marketplace. 

So, where did the contracts go?

Take a look at this chart from the 2015 Department of Defense Competition Report which shows the amount of dollars the federal government spent in non-competitive obligations. 

Non-Competitive Details

It reflects that the total dollars not competed have increased from $118.8 billion in 2014 to $121.9 billion last 2015. The increase is worth $3.1 billion.

So, what does it mean? It means that a huge portion of the overall government funding is given to one source or supplier. 

This is because the non-competitive dollars are obligated under the Federal Acquisition Regulation 6.302-1 which states that there’s only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy the agency requirements.


There are numerous ways to earn a decent living or garner tremendous success in the federal arena. You can be a consultant, a small business owner, or large prime. 

“Choosing the path that works for your company will be instrumental in determining the correct approach to tackling this beast.”

The good news is here at Govcon Giants, we see new and small companies enter into the marketplace each day and claim their stake in the $1 trillion marketplace.
