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 by GovWin remained consistent with historical norms during the month of August. The expected late summer slowdown saw around 1,500 less bids released this month compared to July.  The breakdown between JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities shifted towards the larger end of historical norms varying by slightly larger than the last three months. JPS/HS accounted for 25% of solicitations in August, up 2% from the previous month. Transportation represented 56% of projects, down 5% from the previous month and the largest difference seen from any vertical during 2018. Public Utilities represented 19% of solicitations, up 3% from July. These figures are towards the extreme ends of historical trends but are still within what is expected of the JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities market.

While a fewer amount of SLED JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities solicitations were released in August the types of projects remained almost identical to historical averages. Architecture, Engineering and Construction accounted for 42% of solicitations, the same as were released in July. Professional Services accounted for 10% of JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities projects, the same as were released in July. Information Technology represented 3% of projects that were solicited, down only 1% from the previous month.
