Growth leaders identify and evaluate targets and opportunities using multiple sources. One common strategy is to target contract recompetes and those which are potentially vulnerable, with a primary vulnerability being contracts held by companies that have been acquired, especially when they are a small business being acquired by a large.   

Case in point – Starting shortly after the ink was dried on this acquisition, the OS AI team fielded several requests looking to better understand the current contract makeup for this now former small business who served as a premier partner to several federal health agencies for mission-critical digital modernization solutions. 

We should note that being acquired does not always make a company’s contracts inherently vulnerable as there are many factors in play but in the interest of sharing, included below we list a dozen of this group’s contracts and tasks from across the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid in particular, totaling nearly $500M in value.   

This list includes identified active Contracts or Tasks for SemanticBits (acquired by ICF in June of 2022) across HHS and GSA TTS that will be targets in the months and years ahead. These are listed roughly in the order in which they are expected to expire, with some of the early ones known to already be in the process of being re-competed.  

Dance Lightly. Do know that some of these potential requirements will NOT end up being recompeted at all for any number of reasons (e.g., contract consolidation, extension, cancellation, etc), but this list can serve as a great foundation as you build out your pipeline and evaluate future targets.

Firms drawing the most attention: 

Included below is a list of more than three dozen large and small companies we have noted as drawing the most views by Government and industry leaders on the OrangeSlices AI consultant directory over the past two weeks and that bring direct past performance and/or related relationships in support of CMS. 

** An Elev8 GovCon Honoree, noted for a corporate culture that demonstrates excellence, making the company a beacon for talent, for partners, and for clients.         

We cannot and will not speculate here as to the reasons for the increased interest, but whether it is a company evaluating them as a potential partner; a federal acquisition leader doing their due diligence; or a consultant weighing their next job move, this group of companies has been receiving increased interest.
