The upward trend continues as October saw a 9 percent increase in general government solicitations compared to September. This is a welcomed change from October 2014, which saw an almost 25 percent decrease in bids from the previous month.

Professional services solicitations accounted for 70 percent of solicitations, while the remaining 30 percent related to information technology. Education was the dominant vertical, followed by natural resources/environment.
