FMI Corp. has released its latest white paper, β€œThe Federal Construction Sector: Understanding a Transforming Market.” Given the rapid transformations occurring in the federal construction sector, FMI examines the key forces accelerating these changes, as well as their effect on the industry.

Highlighted topics include:

  • The impact of a pronounced decrease in overall infrastructure funding
  • The continued emphasis upon sustainability and energy efficiency in federal facilities
  • The push for clean energy innovation
  • The increase in small business initiatives.

Jackie Robinson-Burnette, associate director of the Office of Small Business, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, states: "In my 30 years of contract experience with the federal government, I have never witnessed such an emphasis and focus on promoting small business. We are seeing policies, guidance and support at the highest levels of the government, including the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, and the Deputy Assistant Secretarty of Defense for Acquisitions, Logistics and Technology."
