Every year the GovWin IQ team works diligently to provide our customers with the most innovative, comprehensive insights in the government contracting market. 2020 was no different. Although there were many unforeseen circumstances, the GovWin IQ team has been hard at work to come out of 2020 stronger for the customers we serve.

The state, local and education (SLED) market innovations this year included:

  • Operational Improvements - Faster bid publishing and bid document collection with increased data sources
  • Tracked Opportunities coverage expansion - Our most detailed opportunity tracking has expanded into new industries
  • State Checkbooks - Detailed line-item spending broken down by department, category and vendor for all 50 states
  • Multi-State Budget Data - Compare spending across multi-state budgets and multi-state IT budgets
  • Data Analysis Tools - Dive into expenditures, employment, population and educational enrollment

Each of these enhancements are geared at ensuring our SLED market coverage is as comprehensive as possible to help our customers make informed business growth decisions.

  • Review detailed line-item spending tables with the ability to download all checkbook data for each state
  • Build custom tables with the exact data you want for analysis or download
  • Create and download forecasts and other visualizations for your use

This state checkbooks data is ideal for Sales Managers, Sales Representatives and Territory Managers because it allows these teams to be strategic in pursuit of growth where dollars are going. This data is perfect for defining your competitive landscape, reviewing networking opportunities from transactions of interest, or performing spending analysis of past and predicting future spending.

Multi-State Budgets

  • Compare, analyze, customize and download GovWin’s industry-leading budget data across all states
  • Limits on downloads and access removed to give you total control
  • Customize budget data for territory research across multiple states or strategic planning across the nation

Multi-State Budgets are useful for Sales & Business Development Managers; as well as Senior Strategic Planners. With the ability to carefully compare spending across states, these groups can effectively plan for tactical and strategic growth efforts.

Data Analysis Tools

Multi-government data analysis tools cover all states, cities, counties, special districts, colleges/universities and independent school districts to give you centralized coverage when making strategic decisions.

  • Greatly expanded capabilities covering expenditures, government employment, population and educational enrollment
  • Compare, analyze, customize and download all of this data across all SLED governments

With the ability to review past SLED expenditures, employment, population and enrollment organizations can create plans for their business grounded in data. This ultimately helps form Go-To-Market decisions that are so critical in times of growth and market uncertainty. Similarly to Multi-State Budgets, this data is ideal for Business Development Managers and Senior Strategic Planners.
