A quarterly recap of SLED Justice and Public Safety solicitation releases.

In the fourth quarter of 2021, the Justice and Public Safety (JPS) market saw a small decrease in the number of bids released compared to the third quarter of 2021. There was a 4% increase in the number of bids released. As procurement slows down in quarter four as the holidays and year-end approach, this small decrease is not unusual.

50% of bids released in the JPS market in the fourth quarter had a primary requirement of professional services, an increase from the third quarter. Bids with a primary requirement of architecture, engineering and construction made up 36% of bids released in the fourth quarter, a decrease over the third quarter. Finally, only 13% of bids released in quarter four had a primary requirement of information technology. This stayed consistent with the percentage of bids with a primary requirement of information technology in quarter three.

New Jersey released the most number of public safety bids at 528. California and Texas both released over 200 JPS bids in quarter four. Wyoming released the fewest number of JPS bids at four. South Dakota released five and Idaho released six.
