Notable projects and releases
  • In March, the state of New York released a solicitation for fleet management consulting services, with proposals due April 13. The contract scope includes developing and implementing a comprehensive fleet management program, modernizing the management of the state's fleet, and developing any contractual documents for new systems. A solicitation for a new fleet management system is at least 8-10 months away given the consultant’s scope of work.
  • The Washington State Patrol (WSP) issued a request for proposals (RFP) for an intelligent management system coordinator. The state is looking to hire a consultant to provide planning and design support of information and intelligent systems for the Washington State Fusion Center (WSFC).
  • The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WDOT) released a request for information (RFI) to obtain information from vendors on driver's license identification card issuance and production. The solution is expected to be integrated with the WisDMV Web services, mainframe, and customer flow system (released last month), and must include the ability to utilize facial recognition software.
Notable awards
 
Analyst’s Take
 
Unlike previous months, no large project solicitations were released in April. Despite the low level of activity, vendors should be prepared for a booming next couple of months, which historically are known to have many solicitations released. Additionally, solicitations that closed earlier this year will start to be awarded in the near future, and Deltek will be closely monitoring and reporting on signed contracts.
