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

The number of Justice and Public Safety/Homeland Security (JPS/HS), Transportation and Public Utilities bids captured in March remained similar to the number of solicitations released in the previous two months. However, the distribution of the bids released changed greatly as the GovWin-Onvia technology integration continues to takes place. The Transportation vertical accounted for 57% of JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities solicitations released in March, down from 68% last month. JPS/HS solicitations represented 28% of the JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities market, only a 3% drop from February. Public Utilities saw the greatest change, returning to a more normal portion of the market, at 15% of solicitations.

The types of projects that were solicited in March remained similar to those of the past few months for Architecture, Engineering and Construction; Professional Services; and Information Technology. Architecture, Engineering and Construction accounted for 34% of solicitations, only 1% higher than last month. Information Technology accounted for 5% of projects in March, also up 1%. Professional Services represented 8% of projects, which was a 2% decrease.
