The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) will provide more than $1 trillion in Government spending over five years, with a majority of the spending coming through state and local Governments. Along with projects for roads, bridges, mass transit, and wastewater systems, the bill also calls for spending on broadband extension, alternative energy solutions, and energy grid resilience. IIJA also has nearly $2 billion set aside for cybersecurity efforts.

There are several things your company can do to stay ahead of the competition and win some of this federal spending.

Target the Agencies, Contract Vehicles, and Established Partners

Much of the funding will be filtered through a handful of agencies: General Services Administration; Department of Transportation; Department of Energy; Department of Health & Human Services; Department of Commerce; Environmental Protection Agency; Department of Interior; Department of Army; Federal Communications Commission; Department of Agriculture; Department of Homeland Security. Focus your intelligence gathering in these spaces and develop a through assessment of agency needs.

The Government wants to obligate the IIJA funds quickly, meaning they will likely rely on established vendors already working within these agencies. Identifying these funding streams and contracting vehicles will allow companies to target the IIJA funds. Additionally, you can identify and partner with companies already involved in infrastructure-related contracting.

Consider Competition at the State and Local Level

Most of the IIJA spending will be distributed at the state and local levels via grant programs. If you provide services in the infrastructure space, this might be the perfect time to consider bidding on state and local contracting opportunities in the works for IIJA.
