GSA Contract...Help!

My boss has asked me to work on getting our company a contract with the U.S. government's General Services Administration (GSA). I have been doing some research and reading everything I can about it, but I think this may be too big of a job for just me. Does anyone have any experience with working on a contract like this or know of any good resources for help? Anything that any of you can offer would be great. Thanks!

Useful but not well-known web tools

Recent/Obscure web applications and tools filter. I am talking with a government department (Economic Development) about using web based applications and tools both internally and externally. I've got the basics covered, but it would be nice to include mentions of some less-than-famous apps or tools that have been of use elsewhere. If there are any that have provided some mileage for you or your organisation, especially govt ones, I'd love to hear about them.

Using social media in government

I'm looking for examples of U.S. federal agencies effectively using social media. I'm particularly interested in those that do not have critical, consistent need to use social media (as CDC, USAID or FEMA do). State or Canadian provincial agencies would be of interest, too, but here also I'm looking for non-critical need. Thanks!

Why isn't free market best solution to US healthcare crisis?

What are the best arguments (links to articles/sites appreciated) that government regulation and tax code distortions are not the primary causes of the American healthcare crisis? Why wouldn't a more free-market approach (i.e. remove the obstacles to far more vigorous competition between insurers for individual premiums) be the solution? If adverse selection is a reason, how is that any worse for health care than for other insurance markets (e.g. life insurance)?

Funding for the Global War on Terror?

I'm looking for a list of foreign governments receiving aid (military and developmental) under the auspices of the GWOT (global war on terror). BUT, not aid related to either Afghanistan or Iraq. For example, since 2001, how much has the US provided places like Colombia, the Philippines and Indonesia to fight terrorism? The more official and exhaustive the source (GAO, CRS) the better.

Reading on the Campaign Trail

What are some good campaign trail biographies? I'm looking for any interesting read, whether in book form or a series of articles, that follows a candidate for a period of time up to their election, preferably ones where the writer actually accompanied the candidate as they went through the process of running. I'm not only looking for presidential candidates, but any government post at all (senate, congress, local government etc). I know Hunter Thompson is a good place to start, but what else?
