Federal contractors are figuring out how to succeed, while uncertainty about federal spending continues.

President Obama will outline a new plan for deficit reduction tomorrow. And the House will vote later this week on a 2012 budget that would cut trillions of dollars in coming years.

Meanwhile, Congress still needs to clear the budget deal for this year.

Rich Wilkinson, director of government contracting and technology at Watkins Meegan, explains what contractors should be doing to stay in business.
