050211_5303_3780_While I recently blogged here about how state budget cutbacks are making it much harder to get state and local contracts, apparently the same is not true for federal opportunities. In fact, in a recent blog post on, marketing expert Caron Beesley explains why right now is a crucial time for landing federal contracts.

The federal government’s fiscal year-end is September 30, Beesley explains, so Uncle Sam is in the throes of its year-end buying frenzy, with agencies frantically seeking to spend their dollars before the clock runs out.

Beesley draws on her experience with a company that provided IT solutions to the federal government to offer 7 secrets for landing contracts, as well as useful resources to help. You’ll need to act fast, but if you follow her advice there could still be time for your company to grab your slice of the government pie.
