When selecting a provider of government commerce intelligence, enterprises turn to Onvia because we take a holistic approach to our scope of coverage. Our clients know that along with the data volume, value, workflow adoption and agility their Onvia subscription provides, they are also gaining an opportunity advantage over the competition with information that provides line-of-sight into past, present and future spend to aid in securing government contracts.

Our data value chain captures the breadth and depth of fragmented and unstructured B2G commerce data by parsing out the relevant project information and using our proprietary ontology to make it easy to search for the most relevant government contract leads. For this report, our market research team analyzed the future spending forecast data published in our B2GIS, and calculated an index that displays states with the highest volumes of future planned projects relative to their population size. Our team used the following criteria to calculate the index:

  • Base: All planned 2017-18 infrastructure projects worth $25M or more grouped by state.
  • Geography: All 50 states & D.C.
  • Index Calculation: State share of all national projects/state share of national population.
  • Interpretation: Values over 1.0 = a greater number of planned projects than would be expected for an area of that size

The results of our study reveals a map useful for strategic planners at firms who are designing their strategy for pursuing infrastructure contracts with the government. With a score of 2.0+ and above, each of the following 7 states rated “Very High” for the volume of planned projects worth $25M or more relative to their population size:

  • Alaska: Index Score - 8.50
  • Delaware: Index Score - 6.50
  • Washington D.C.: Index Score – 5.24
  • Hawaii: Index Score – 3.50
  • Vermont: Index Score – 3.43
  • Maryland: Index Score – 3.36
  • Kentucky: Index Score – 2.36

Other states rated “High” with a score of 1.1-1.9 include: California, Arizona, New Mexico, North Dakota, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York

Use This Information to Get Ahead of Bids and RFPs to Beat the Competition

Enterprises who have a strategic investment in B2G use more than current bid and RFP information to succeed. In fact, if you wait for a bid or RFP to hit the street, it is often too late as the competition has been busy outreaching to federal, state and local agency buyers and influencing specifications well before the solicitation is put out for competitive bid. The most successful businesses study future looking data to better forecast upcoming bids/RFPs, understand the competitive landscape and ultimately increase their probability of winning government contracts.
