Coronavirus: Government Contractor Usage Report

Monday, April 13, 2020

Government Contractors are adapting to an increasingly uncertain environment as a result of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Our evolving analysis addresses guidance issued by federal agencies and related spending that has been disbursed across the Federal Government.

On March 23rd, we released an initial summary report available exclusively to our Insider + SME members exploring how the Federal Government is utilizing the Government Contracting ecosystem to support the urgent Coronavirus requirements. To ensure we are providing our members with the most up-to-date information, we have provided an update to the progress and spending obligations in support of this pandemic. The data in our report was obtained from FPDS-NG and beta.sam.gov. We believe it represents a portion of Coronavirus requirements that have been awarded to date.

Summary of Report [Last Updated: April 13]:

  • Provides direct links and timeline of OMB, DoD, and Federal Agency directives and memos relevant to COVID-19 requirements
  • Provides a breakdown of total federal obligations (~$2.9B as of April 13th)
  • Provides a breakdown of federal spending across 39 agencies (HHS spending totals at $1.5B as of April 13th)
  • Provides a breakdown of federal vehicle usage and obligations across 51 separate vehicles (7% of all COVID-19 requirements have been purchased through previously established vehicles as of April 13th [this does not include GSA Schedules])
  • Provides a breakdown of vendor utilization and obligations across 1,154 separate vendors (32% of all COVID-19 requirements have been obligated to just 3 vendors as of April 13th)

As updates come in, The Pulse will continue to update this special report, as needed.
