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

The Justice and Public Safety/Homeland Security (JPS/HS), Transportation and Public Utilities market shifted slightly in December, seeing a rise in Transportation projects and a decline in Public Utilities solicitations. Transportation accounted for 63% of the SLED JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities market segment, up 6% from November. Public Utilities declined 5% to come in at 16% of solicitations in December and JPS/HS remained steady at 21% of JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities solicitations. The fluctuation in the market share of the Public Utilities vertical is to be expected and is likely to remain between 15-25% of the market, along with JPS/HS. The total number of solicitations released in December increased by 21% over November and over 26% more than were released in October. This growth is likely due to governments trying to get projects posted before the end of 2017.


December again saw a major shift in the types of projects that were solicited. Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) increased another 13% to account for 42% of solicitations in December. Information Technology (IT) and Professional Services (PS) both remained steady at 5% each for the types of solicitations released in December. For the end of 2017, AEC dominated the market as governments sought to fulfill any construction-related needs as winter sets in and 2018 begins.



Notable Solicitation Releases

  • The Idaho Transportation Department released a request for request for proposals for a Highway Safety Analysis System. Idaho is seeking to procure a system that will more easily coalesce data from diverse sources to provide detailed safety analysis of state highways. The system will integrate highway safety information with geographic information and generate solutions to reduce hazards contributing to accidents. Proposals are due on February 5, 2018.
  • The New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has a requirement for an Electronic Project Management Replacement System. The new system will coordinate capital improvement programs for the MTA’s subsidiary organizations. The new system will be implemented through five phases that will result in a more accessible and streamlined project management system. Proposals are due on January 24, 2018.
  • The Arizona Supreme Court is seeking a new Appellate Case Management System (CMS). Arizona is seeking a system that will provide enhanced functionality that will modernize the court system’s technology. Integration with other Arizona court IT systems is a crucial aspect of this project. Proposals are due on March 7, 2018.
