A monthly recap of SLED JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities solicitation releases.

The distribution of all solicitations released in the Justice and Public Safety/Homeland Security (JPS/HS), Transportation and Public Utilities verticals stabilized in November. Transportation accounted for 57% of solicitations released, a 7% increase for the month, while JPS/HS made up 22% of solicitations, which was a small decline from last month. Public Utilities also saw a small decline and accounted for 21% of solicitations for the month of November. Transportation has historically accounted for the largest share of the SLED JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities market and this trend is expected to continue. JPS/HS and Public Utilities will continue to have small fluctuations between 4% and 8% monthly as states address specific procurement needs 

The types of projects that were solicited greatly shifted again in November. Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) projects accounted for 29% of projects, a 14% increase from October. Information Technology only represented 6% of solicitations, down 3% from last month. Professional Services saw an increase of 1.7% to come in at 6% of solicitations. It is unclear whether or not AEC will continue to represent a larger portion of projects solicited in future months or if governments are attempting to fill construction needs before the end of the year and winter begins in earnest.

Notable Solicitation Releases

  • The Wisconsin Department of Corrections released a request for proposals (RFP) for an Offender Electronic Monitoring System. The system is meant to include three components, radio frequency monitoring, alcohol monitoring and GPS monitoring. An award will be made for each individual component. Proposals are due on January 16, 2018.
  • The Vermont Agency of Transportation, Department of Motor Vehicles has a requirement for a Drivers License/ID System Replacement. Vermont is currently compliant with the Real ID Act of 2005. Vermont is seeking to move away from a decentralized issuance approach for licenses and IDs towards a consolidated issuance approach. This new method will require facial recognition software, a photo capture application and robust storage systems. Proposals are due on January 12, 2018.   
  • The City of Atlanta Department of Procurement, on behalf of the Department of Aviation, is seeking to acquire a Passenger Wait Time Reporting System. The new system would be implemented at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The goal of the project is to help passengers efficiently move through security checkpoints while providing airport staff real-time data to monitor and react to large crowds. Proposals are due on January 10, 2018.
