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

The month of May again saw a rise in the number of Justice and Public Safety/Homeland Security (JPS/HS), Transportation and Public Utilities bids captured. GovWin captured nearly 20% more solicitations in May compared to April. The continued integration of GovWin and Onvia resources and the end of the second quarter spending increase are contributing factors to this growth. The distribution of solicitations over the JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities subsections remained nearly identical to April’s distribution. Both Transportation and JPS/HS increased by 1% over the previous month to account for 63% and 23% respectively. Public Utilities moved down slightly to account for 14% of solicitations, a 2% drop over the previous month. It is likely that these market segments will remain mostly steady over the long term.

The types of projects that were solicited in May remained identical compared to May, sticking with historical norms for the SLED JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities market. Architecture, Engineering and Construction accounted for 45% of solicitations, Information Technology represented 3% of projects and Professional Services came in at 9% of projects in May.
