  • 1. Procurement Spending in the DC Region Effects on the Economy, Employment, & Commercial Real Estate Procurement Generates up to 4.7M Square Feet in Office Demand by 2014 Federal procurement spending – the amount of funds the federal government spends on private sector contracts – plays a significant role in the DC area economy. From 2001 to 2009, procurement spending accounted for an average 16.5 percent of DC area real gross regional product (GRP). Procurement spending helped the region to weather the recent economic downturn. The latest available figures show that DC region procurement spending totaled $96.9 billion in 2009, thus representing 26.3 percent of real GRP for that year. During 2010, DC area real GRP grew at a 5.9 percent rate – over twice the national GDP growth rate. This type of economic growth is key in driving employment and commercial real estate demand. Cassidy Turley Research forecasts the DC metro to add 158,000 non-farm jobs through 2014. Assuming 10 to 15 percent of those jobs are related to procurement contracts, DC metro could see between 3.2 million to 4.7 million square feet in office demand through 2014 from procurement spending.

The largest amount of DC DC % of total US procurementregion procurement is spent with Department of Defense contractors,which accounts for approximately half of all DC procurement spending. Source: Consolidated Report on Federal Funds, Moody’s Economy.comFederal ContractorsRecent passage of key legislation and an increased focus on federal deficit reduction could potentially affect procurement spending. Thesechanges in budgeting and funding for defense, healthcare and commerce will affect private sector employment in the DC region and,subsequently, local office market demand.Defense – the Department of Defense (DoD) accounts for a significant Procurement Spending by Agencyportion of overall procurement spending.

Homeland Security Commerce Treasury Health & Human Services DefenseThus, any private sector moves would occur over a longer period oftime than originally expected. Source: Consolidated Report on Federal Funds, Moody’s Economy.comThe top five private sector companies receiving DoD procurement dollars all have a significant presence in the DC region. These companiesaccounted for $101 billion in procurement contracts – or 28 percent of all DoD procurement in 2009. Refer to the Appendix for a list of thetop national contractors, most of which have a presence in the DC region.Federal debt has climbed to historical highs over the past few years. National defense spending has come under increased scrutiny. Aftermany years of significant expansion, growth in defense spending is expected to slow in 2011. Most industry experts predict defense spendingto grow at a slower rate in the DC metro area. Additionally, defense spending may shift from military-based projects to initiatives in IT, cybersecurity and intelligence, which bode well for the DC region. Although there is always the potential for DC defense procurement to slow, it hasnot declined in the DC metro area for the past 20 years. cassidyturley.com | 2
  • 3. Procurement Spending in the DC Region Effects on the Economy, Employment, & Commercial Real EstateHealth - the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded just under $19 billion in procurement contracts during 2009.With the enactment of national healthcare reform in 2010, HHS-related business is expected to expand. For example, HHS took 70,500square feet of space in suburban Maryland in 2010 due to healthcare reform. Some private sector contractors have expressed an interest inadditional office space, although there remains uncertainty in some aspects of healthcare reform which have not been fully funded yet.In 2009, the top contractor recipients of HHS procurement dollars were global pharmaceutical companies (Novartis, Merck, Sanofi-Aventis,GlaxoSmithKline) that are headquartered outside of the DC metro area. Northern Virginia-based SAIC (a scientific, engineering and technologycompany) received $825 million in 2009 HHS procurement contracts, equal to 4.1 percent of all HHS procurement.Suburban Maryland is expected to experience future growth with developments in healthcare industries and services. The National CancerInstitute (NCI) has broken ground on a new 575,000 square foot building expected to deliver in the first quarter of 2013. Opportunitiesexist for healthcare research and medical offices with proximity to NCI and the National Institutes of Health. Depending on which areas ofhealthcare reform are fully funded, future demand in the private sector will be for office space suitable for medical offices, research, IT,accounting, and administrative services.Finance and Commerce - the Departments of Commerce and Treasury have expanded due to new financial regulation, reform, and consumerprotection. These two agencies combined accounted for just under $8 billion in federal government procurement spending during 2009.Approximately half of this amount was spent in the DC region.In 2009, Harris Corporation and Lockheed Martin (both of which have a strong local presence in DC) accounted for $639 million, or 20percent, of the Department of Commerce procurement spending in the US. Northern Virginia-based Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC)and Northrop Grumman were two of the top five contractors for the Department of Treasury.Legislation, such as the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (referred to usually as “Dodd-Frank”), has spurred office leasingactivity in the public sector during 2010 and will continue to do so in 2011. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) leased 900,000square feet during the summer of 2010 at Constitution Center in DC. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) has since leased640,000 square feet of the SEC’s space. Future opportunities may exist for private companies providing outsourcing services in finance,accounting, and IT services.IT - Information technology is required across all areas and levels of government. In an era of cost consciousness, federal agencies areseeking to outsource IT services. Agencies such as the General Services Administration (GSA) expect to save $15 million over the next fiveyears by outsourcing IT1. Cloud computing2 has been one solution to the Federal Government’s need to shift IT services and infrastructureto a third party. For instance, by Fiscal Year 2012, the Department of Homeland Security plans on shifting 100,000 e-mailboxes into “thecloud.” Increased demand for IT services bodes well for Northern Virginia’s private sector technology companies.1 Johnson, Nicole Blake.

  • 4. Procurement Spending in the DC Region Effects on the Economy, Employment, & Commercial Real EstateEmploymentCommercial real estate demand is closely linked with job growth. The past year showed an improvement in both the public and private sectoremployment. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the DC metro area added 8,700 non-farm jobs on a non-seasonally adjusted,annualized basis in 2010. DC regional employment in the Healthcare and Professional and Business Services sectors grew in 2010, while theFinancial Services sector still continued to shed jobs.Moving forward, Cassidy Turley Research forecasts job growth in 2011-2014 to be steady as economic and business conditions in the privatesector continue to improve. We expect the Financial Activities sector to show some improvement after four years of consecutive downsizing.Initiatives in the Departments of Commerce and Treasury may contribute to this growth, although the sector still faces some risk due to theuncertain fate of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.With the exception of 2010, scientific and IT sectors have performed well in the DC region. We expect employment in Computer SystemsDesign and Management, Scientific, and Consulting Services to pick up as more demand shifts back to IT-related services as result ofincreased cyber security and government spending for IT services.Employment in the Healthcare sector will continue to expand. Over the past 20 years, the sector has added jobs in the DC region every singleyear. On average, healthcare employment grows 3.2 percent annually, or by 4,600 jobs.Employment Changes Professional & Business Services EmploymentDC Metro, Year over Year Change DC Metro, Year over Year Change 30 15 35 130 25 Sector Employment Change (000) PBS Employment Change (000) 25 Total Private Employment Change (000) 110 10 Sector Employment Change (000) 20 90 15 15 70 5 5 10 50 0 30 (5) 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 5 10 (5) 0 (15) (10) 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 (5) (10) (25) (30) (10) (50) Legal Accounting Financial Activities Health Computer Systems Design Mgmt, Scientific & Consulting Services Professional & Business Services Total Private Employment Employment Services Total Professional & Business Services (PBS)Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, Moody’s Economy.com Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, Moody’s Economy.com cassidyturley.com | 4
