The end of Q2 2014 wrapped with 37 percent fewer solicitations released than May.
 
Not as many contracts were awarded in June than the month before, possibly due to agencies waiting for the new fiscal year to have funds available. Several agencies also pushed back solicitation releases into Q3, as funding issues are tying up government procurement offices. Additionally, June brought a lot of activity around next generation 911 (NG911) as agencies nationwide look to update their systems and implement NG911. Vendors should keep an eye on agencies moving in this direction; they may choose to release consultant RFPs beforehand to be able to identify what components will be needed for the main solicitation.
 
Notable RFP releases in June:
·          Kansas’ next generation 911 infrastructure system
·          Virginia’s Internet protocol (IP)-based 9-1-1 network feasibility study
·          New Mexico Department of Public Safety’s (NMDPS) computer aided dispatch (CAD) system and mobile data computer system (MDCS)
