The market in Q2 2021 (April-June 2021) for Transportation and Public Utilities (TPU) has stayed relatively consistent compared to Q1 2021 in terms of distribution in overall bids. There were a total of just over 38,000 bids released for TPU with Transportation representing 73% of projects and Public Utilities representing 27% of projects.

Architecture, Engineering and Construction projects accounted for 55% of solicitations. Professional Services accounted for 6% of projects. While Information Technology represented 3% of bids released.

Pennsylvania, California and Texas had the most bids for the month in the TPU market, accounting for 29% of bids released. Delaware, Vermont and Washington DC saw the least amount of TPU bids with 1%.

Bids showed a 10% increase for Q2 2021 compared to Q1 2021. While bid numbers in Q3 are not expected to reach pre-covid levels, the anticipation would be to see similar numbers to Q1 and/or Q2.
