Deltek Pulse: Architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) month in review, February 2017
A trend that Deltek noticed in January 2017 was a sharp rise in the number of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) projects issued. While the rise in January 2017 was a staggering 35% over December 2016, the increase from January to February was a modest, but still welcome, 10.5%. Over the next few months, the number of bids will likely flatten out and be near to the current level.
In February, city governments released the most bids, with 30.3%, followed by state agencies at 28.3%, and counties being higher than the previous month at 18.4%. Universities saw a large drop down to only 7.7% of all bids.
Regionally, the South continued to be on top with 33.1%, followed by the West at 26.9%, Midwest at 20.8% and East at 19.2%. Los Angeles County still didn’t make the list of the top four counties in terms of procurement activity. In February, Westchester County, NY issued the most bids. However, the city of Los Angeles issued the second most bids behind New York City.
