FMI's "The Federal Construction Sector: Understanding a Transforming Market" highlights topics like the decrease in overall infrastructure funding and the emphasis for sustainability and energy efficiency in federal facilities.
FMI Corp. has released its latest white paper, “The Federal Construction Sector: Understanding a Transforming Market.” Given the rapid transformations occurring in the federal construction sector, FMI examines the key forces accelerating these changes, as well as their effect on the industry.
Highlighted topics include:
- The impact of a pronounced decrease in overall infrastructure funding
- The continued emphasis upon sustainability and energy efficiency in federal facilities
- The push for clean energy innovation
- The increase in small business initiatives.
Jackie Robinson-Burnette, associate director of the Office of Small Business, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, states: "In my 30 years of contract experience with the federal government, I have never witnessed such an emphasis and focus on promoting small business. We are seeing policies, guidance and support at the highest levels of the government, including the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, and the Deputy Assistant Secretarty of Defense for Acquisitions, Logistics and Technology."

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
