Here's a little something to put some pep in your business development step.

For FY2012, which U.S. State holds the #1 spot for federal agency spending under the Simplified Acquisition Procedures where the place of performance was in that state?

Idaho reigns supreme!asbcs

No, this is not a chamber of commerce ad for the potato state, but recognition of the more than $420 million dollars spent via streamlined purchase methods this fiscal year (already) with a place of performance in Idaho. More than fifty organizations (including the State of Idaho) have taken at least one of the more than one-thousand contract actions money stackissued by U.S. Mint, Veterans Affairs, OPM, Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service.

Like to know more about this and the rest of the nearly $3 billion dollars that's already been awarded by federal agencies in FY12? Register for Wednesday's Business Over Breakfast in Tysons or for an upcoming in-person or web edition of The ASBCs of Government Contracting: Simplified Acquisition Overview.
