Deltek Pulse: Architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) month in review, September 2016
In August 2016, Deltek observed a positive trend with regard to the number of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) solicitations issued, an increase of 6.4 percent from the previous month. However, in September 2016 the trend ticked downward, with a decline of 3.25 percent. It is difficult to identify the root cause for the movement in both directions, but this appears to be a common trend with solicitations in non-AEC related markets.
Typically, city governments issue the highest percentage of bids, however, in September, state governments released 33.6 percent of bids, with cities coming in second with 30.3 percent. County governments issued more than in August, with 15.1 percent and universities remaining virtually unchanged at 7.8 percent.
As we have seen in nearly every month, the top five states were California (10.9 percent), Texas (8 percent), New York (4.8 percent), Washington (4.6 percent) and Florida (4.5 percent). When we break it down by region, the Southern U.S. issued 37.5 percent of all bids, with the West coming in second at 26.7 percent.
