Top Agencies for Procurement Forecasting Named in PSC’s 2024 Federal Business Scorecard

Arlington, Va. (June 20, 2024) -- The Professional Services Council (PSC) today released its sixth annual Federal Business Forecast Scorecard. The scorecard is a critical resource for federal contractors, including PSC’s 400+ member companies, as they rely on agency procurement forecasts for effective business planning and capability development to meet the needs of their federal government customers.

The Scorecard examines procurement forecasts from 70 federal agencies and sub-components based on 15 Key Attributes to a Successful Business Forecast including searchable spreadsheets, update frequency, award types, and set-aside information.

Highlights from the Scorecard:

  • Model for Governmentwide Forecasting: GSA Acquisition Gateway.  The Acquisition Gateway encompasses all 15 key attributes identified by PSC. The Gateway allows users to search for contracting opportunities and access detailed information easily.
  • Model for Governmentwide Success: Department of the Labor. DoL’s forecast includes up-to-date forecast data, modified at least monthly and often listing new opportunities bi-weekly to the current day.
  • Model for Agency Success: U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). USAID has consistently improved its forecast, resulting in a clear identification of procurement status and contract opportunities.
  • Honorable Mention: Department of Education. The Department of Education was commended for its straightforward and accessible forecast presented in a single spreadsheet, setting an example for other agencies.

“PSC thanks all agencies for their efforts to provide excellent business forecasts and for working with PSC throughout its scorecard assessment,” said Sebastian Herrick, Director of Procurement Policy at PSC." We are pleased to see progress in this year’s models for governmentwide forecasting and welcome additional dialogue to assist in the improvement of future federal business forecasts."


PSC is the voice of the federal government services and solutions industry, with more than 400 small, medium, and large member companies that support federal agency missions and functions.
