Fed Tech "BisNow" - Tech Women Unite

 

We gathered some of the smartest women executives in tech yesterday morning in Falls Church for insight on the future of federal contracting. More than 200 turned out to hear that fed dollars are shrinking but opportunities are sprouting.

We had two Teresas on the panel (they should start a band): Sapient Government Services managing director Teresa Bozzelli, who moderated, and Amazon Web Services global public sector VP Teresa Carlson. Teresa took the role at Amazon nine months ago to offer on-demand computing and storage to federal agencies. She says the company helps agencies be innovative, which leads to cost savings. Moderator Teresa told us federal contracting dollars allocated to contractors dropped 18 percent this year over last. Federal money going toward tech and science dropped 20 percent.
