Forrester Predicts Less Money for Federal Tech, More for State and Local

A new analysis suggests a decrease in tech sector spending for the federal government under President Donald Trump, but significant growth in that sector for state and local governments.

Released this week, analysis by Forrester Research predicts federal tech spending to decrease 0.1 percent in 2017 and 0.6 percent in 2018 “as the incoming Trump administration works with Congress to cut federal spending.” The forecasted dip in federal tech sector spending comes after several consecutive years of growth in that metric by 1 to 3 percent.
