The buzz in the contracting community with the release of the 2013 budget request is that companies will have to fight harder to get — and keep — business with federal agencies.

Ray Bjorklund, the vice president and chief knowledge officer at Deltek, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss his take on the administration's 2013 budget request.

Bjorklund discussed how the deficit has made the obvious opportunities a little more difficult to pin down. He also discussed how companies can strategize as budgets shrink.
