The calendar new year is just under way, but the year-end rush for fiscal 2015 is still eight months away. This year’s fiscal-year-end rush may be a little different than other years though. Dr. Nick Nayak is former Chief Procurement Officer at the Department of Homeland Security. He shared his Top 3 for 2015 on In Depth with Francis Rose. He said you might see a blast to start the year off, then another rush in the fall.

Nick Nayak’s Top 3 for 2015

  1. Spending on the civilian side is stable and most will occur at year’s end as always. DHS will have larger year-end spending than most.
  2. Incumbent contractors and those with niche products or services will thrive.
  3. Politics will dominate so no major procurement or acquisition reform will occur.

In our special radio report, Top 3 for 2015, federal experts tell In Depth host Francis Rose what top three concepts, trends or priorities they believe will be important in 2015.
