Onvia captured a record number of government contract leads in March. Moreover, the Q1 2017 edition of our State and Local Procurement Snapshot series reinforces the notion that attention, activity and opportunity to win more government contracts in the public sector marketplace is at an all-time high.
The study, which uses the same public sector sales intelligence available in Onvia’s B2G Intelligence System, reveals a notable increase in the total volume of bidding opportunities, 4.9% year-over-year, driven in part by more than $200 billion in recent voter approved infrastructure projects.

State, Local and Education Transportation Leads Grew 13% in Q1 2017
Companies who target and serve public sector customers, whether they be from federal, state, local or education agencies, rely on market trends and insights to help them better understand the direction of the marketplace and where their next big deal may lie. To help them do just that, we are providing a preview into the level of analysis offered in the report with a free, easy-to-share infographic.
The infographic below measures the quarterly growth rate of published bids & RFPs over the last 6 months (Q1 ’17 vs Q4 ’16) and breaks it down by 12 distinct industry sectors. For Q1, the top 4 growth industries were transportation (at 13.0%), environmental services (at 12.1%), water & energy (at 9.7%) and healthcare (at 5.4%).
Further analysis into the high growth rate of transportation bids and RFPs indicated the highest growth rates came from local government, where it was the #1 ranked industry. But opportunities for both transportation services and transportation planning can be found across all levels of SLED.
