The great news for the overall SLED market is that every vertical grew for the quarter. One note, since GovWin expanded vertical coverage in Q4 2016 to include public utilities, there was no comparable coverage for Q2 2016. As a result, while growing, it does not appear on this chart.
Top Q2 Opportunities
IT took over the lead for the first time in several years as the strongest major procurement category, moving up 13.9 % year-over-year; this double digit growth is excellent news for IT contractors.
Counties experienced the largest solicitation growth in Q2, placing them at the top for the second straight quarter.
Health care and social services solicitations grew 21.1% in GovWin's database.
This year GovWin IQ’s State and Local Bid Notifications database saw a 11.6 percent increase in solicitations posted in Q2 2017 vs. Q2 2016. This continues strong performance from Q1 and positions the SLED market for growth for the rest of 2017.
