Deltek Analyst Kristin Howe reports.
This year is already off to a strong start for justice and public safety procurement. After a slow November and December, procurement departments across the country entered 2012 with refocused attention on the market. While the actual number of solicitations released decreased from December, several RFPs hit the street in January for long-awaited projects, and procurement officials were upbeat about solicitations slated for release this year.
The most common terms appearing in solicitations during January were equipment, security and management. The word cloud below provides a visual interpretation of the key terms’ frequent use.
- Number of public safety bids: 189
- Top three states (by number of solicitations released): New York, California and Texas
- Top three keywords: equipment, security and management
