IT contracting in B2G commerce is full of emerging technologies and purchasing trends often vary by industry sub-category and by level of government. For example, Onvia’s B2G Intelligence System (B2GIS) shows that while billion-dollar, multi-vendor, long-term federal IT contracts may grab headlines, the majority of money is being spent elsewhere.
