Field of Dreams

The government stimulus field of dreams: if you build it, they will come...and they will stop going anywhere else.

Onvia Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer Eric Gillespie told the Washington Times, "We've seen businesses go from viewing the government as the last client standing, and now we are hearing government spending is a key part of their business strategies. There is almost a philosophical shift in the industry where more and more businesses, large, medium and small as a result of the stimulus and their realizing there is a large, untapped revenue stream where they haven't been focused before."

Onvia is a Seattle-based company that monitors the government's contracting activity.
