GovConnections™ is after-hours business networking for Government Contractors hosted by Carr Workplaces and The American Small Business Coalition and is a great opportunity to build market intelligence, develop teaming relationships and discover complementary business resources to enhance how you identify and pursue business opportunities in the government sector.

Here are five reasons why you should be at Carr Workplaces-Tysons Boulevard this Thursday at 5PM:

  1. In a recent Washington Technology article by immixGroup co-founder Steve Charles, he states, "We found many IT initiatives with greater spending ceilings in 2013 than in 2012"

  2. The same article cites USDA spending rising from $11.0 million to more than $14 million for the Enterprise Information System, a data warehousing and decision-support project.

  3. DoD is asking for a $260 million dollar increase for NGEN and looks to double the budget for Navy CANES.

  4. Meet and speak to Steve Charles and Dave Perera of FierceGovernmentIT, co-authors of "The Inside Guide to the Federal IT Market"

  5. Appetizers, beer, wine and great networking thanks to our sponsors Management Concepts Press and Deltek!
