Deltek Pulse: Architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) month in review, December 2015
Government business tends to slow down in December with reduced office hours and employees taking holiday vacations, so it’s not surprising that AEC procurement numbers dipped 3.6 percent from November. Look for an increase in solicitations as agencies get back to work early this year.
AEC procurement at the state level accounted for 36.8 percent of solicitations released in December, while cities saw a slight dip to 28.2 percent of solicitations, and counties totaled 14.2 percent. Colleges and universities released 8.4 percent of the nation’s solicitations, followed by special districts at 6.4 percent.
The top five states releasing the most bids is very similar to November, with Texas (10%) and California (9.4%) in their typical one-two slots. Virginia (5.8%) moved up a spot to third, while New York and Florida tied for fourth (5.1). Michigan and Ohio round out the top five, each with 4.3 percent of the nation’s bids.
