With hiring freezes and other cost cutting measures, nearly seventy (70) federal government agencies are seeking out independent contractors (e.g., 1099 consultants) as well as massive orders under the GSA TAPS Schedule.  Why the GSA TAPS Schedule?  Because temporary employees (like 1099 consultants) costs the government less — the rates are lower than GSA MOBIS and many other IT procurement vehicles.  So, these are the ding, ding, ding hot areas for government work.
