As the Business Development Manager responsible for creating the business plan for your company, it can be very challenging to gain a perspective of opportunities over the several years; and from that, determine the specific opportunities to pursue.

 

This week we are going to look at the opportunities for Custom Computer Programming Services (NAICS 541511). To understand this NAICS code better, epipeline has asked the following questions:

 

1.     Who issues the contracts?

2.     Who wins the contracts?

 

NAICS 541511is the primary code when projects require writing, modifying, testing, and supporting software to meet the needs of a particular customer.

Who issues the contracts?

 

The General Services Administration (GSA) is largest buyer for these services. Specifically, through the Federal Technology Service (FTS). This comprises over one fourth of the market share over fiscal years 2001 through 2003, according to Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS - source, epipeline's strategic partner, Eagle Eye). The Department of Defense (including the United States Army, Navy, and Air Force) round out the top five, with a combined 40%+ of the market share. The break down of these five departments (agencies) is depicted in the pie chart below.
