A recap of procurement activity in the SLED Health and Human Services market in March 2019.

Solicitation activity in the State, Local and Education (SLED) Health and Human Services (HHS) market in March experienced a 12% increase compared to February’s solicitations. In March, the majority of solicitations were for Health Services, followed closely by Professional Services and Information Technology. February’s solicitations included the same three top requirements, however, the number of IT solicitations decreased between the two months. In March, following the three top requirements, solicitations for Architecture, Engineering and Construction, Social Services, Medical and Scientific Equipment, and Operations and Maintenance all experienced a slight increase. Throughout the month, there were several solicitations pertaining to Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS), some of which are highlighted below because of their potentially high values.
