A recap of procurement activity in the SLED Health and Human Services market in June 2017

Solicitation activity in the State, Local and Education (SLED) Health and Human Services (HHS) market decreased by 12% in June 2017 compared to May 2017. Despite the decrease from May, HHS solicitations remained comparable to recent months as states were busy closing out their Fiscal Years. The majority of solicitations released in June had a primary requirement of Medical and Scientific Equipment, followed by Professional Services, Health Services, and Social Services. The number of Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC), Information Technology (IT), and Operation and Maintenance (O&M) solicitations held steady in June compared to recent months.
