Washington Technology magazine reports up to $4.5 billion in new state and local tech spending stems from Stimulus package

This article in Washington Technology http://washingtontechnology.com/articles/2009/02/13/stimulus-to-generate-new-state-and-local-tech-spending.aspx?s=wtdaily_170209 provides analysis by Input Inc., indicating that up to $4.5 billion in new state and local tech spending is on the way due to the Stimulus package that President Obama is signing into law today.

Given the tough economic times across all sectors, this represents a tremendous opportunity for the IT community.

Though competition will be hot for these opportunities given the challenging economic climate, it would be great to see state and local governments awarding contracts to those IT organizations who provide win-win responses: cost-effective solutions that incorporate not only best-of-breed products and solutions but also consulting and professional services from proverbial "dream teams" of strategic alliances among U.S.-based tech companies, including local IT shops, so the rising tide of spending helps to "lift all boats" so to speak.
