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 once again remained steady during the month of October reflecting a return to normal buying practices. Bid activity was evenly split between the first and second halves of the month indicating steady buying trends. The distribution of projects between JPS/HS, Transportation and Public Utilities did not see much change in October. Transportation accounted for 56% of bids during the month, down 3% from September. Justice and Public Safety represented 18% of projects, up 1% from the last month. Public Utilities bids were 26% of projects released during October, up 2% from last month. The distribution of bids during October showed a steadying of projects released by state and local governments. The continued reversal between JPS/HS and Public Utilities is something important to watch as 2018 comes to a close.

The types of projects that were solicited in October saw some interesting changes compared with previous months. Architecture, Engineering and Construction projects only accounted for 39% of solicitations, a decrease of 7% over the previous month and the largest drop in the previous year. Professional Services remained nearly identical coming in with 11% of projects, up 1% over September. Information Technology represented 4% of bids in October, identical to September. The slowdown in Architecture, Engineering and Construction will be important to watch as Q4 continues.
