TrumpTech: $450bn in annual fed spend in limbo

There is a lot of uncertainty in the air,” said one consultant close to the Office of Management and Budget’s IT efficiency initiatives who asked not to be identified. “The whole IT industry and federal IT operations are in a wait-and-see holding pattern,” he said, anticipating official word on key federal IT initiatives and leadership positions.

In my amateur analysis of Trump’s effect on IT spend, it seems like there’s three options:

  1. More of the same with big contractors and vendors, just wrapped up in myths of change.
  2. Complete shut down of everything with respect to growth; they just stop spending and let government IT age.
  3. Start working with new government contractors and doing things differently; the “Space X” option.

Who knows what’ll happen?
