The United States Government, and specifically the Department of Defense, is said to be one of the largest procurement entities in the world. With purchasing power that exceeds 700 billion dollars annually, the government has a presence in almost every industry vertical within the private sector. Hence, it is vital to understand government agencies’ purchase trends that match the capabilities of your business concern.
