Over the past several months, the OS AI team has received multiple inquiries from Department of Justice focused BD and Capture leads asking why we do not post more Federal Law Enforcement Sector partner and opportunity research reports and the short answer is we do not get a lot of requests when compared to other agencies and sectors.  

We can only speculate as to why this is the case, but much of it seems to stem from the fact that DOJ loves its BPAs and IDIQS … maybe more than any other FedCiv agency (VA and FDA are in the running). Single award, multiple award – either way, much of the work is released with limited competition, and those companies holding Prime spots on these vehicles are more dialed in in terms of the who/how/when.  

While we receive a limited number of task order research requests, we have received dozens of partner identification and research requests since early Summer asking for insight into an array of IDIQ and BPA contracts. Included here we share the 10 contracts that have drawn the most interest, as well as the DOJ-focused consulting firms that are increasingly viewed as a top partner or competitor option (and/or potential employer).  

OS AI Note – Dance Lightly. Do know that some of these potential IDV requirements will NOT end up being recompeted in 2023 for any number of reasons (e.g., contract consolidation, extension, cancellation, etc), but this list, which includes several requirements that will not expire until 2024, can serve as a great foundation as you build out your pipeline and start to have teaming discussions. No matter what happens with these vehicles, many of the tasks and related work under the existing contracts will need to find a new home and that is where the opportunity lies.  

The top 10 expiring IDIQ and BPA contracts we have received inquiries about include:  

Please note that the research requestors for these items received a Premium OS AI Opp Segment report including 1) known details about how/if/when/where this contract will be competed; 2) a list of the top companies that are in position to win today (as well as those who have been making key investments and moves of late to position for a win); and 3) a detailed list of the top potential opportunity influencers any potential bidder will want to get to know.

Firms drawing the most attention: 

Included below is a list of the 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 week and that bring direct past performance and/or related relationships in support of DOJ. 

** An Elev8 GovCon Honoree, noted for a corporate culture that demonstrates its own 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.
