I am performing an economic impact study of a military installation within a certain, county, region and state. Not sure how to analyze their procurement. For example, say their contracting office awards $200 million in military contract awards in 2014. Out of that $200 million, $60 million is awarded to companies operating within the state being studied. The spending is also not broken down into specific sectors. How do I analyze the impact of that spending? Does the entire $200 million have an impact on my study area or just the $60 million? It seems that just because it was awarded here, shouldn't make much impact on the local economy... only the amount that is awarded within the state. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Jennifer
