President Donald Trump has made it known since the campaign trail that the nation’s crumbling infrastructure was a major priority and called for $1 trillion in investment.
While the rise in projects issued in January 2017 was a staggering 35% over December 2016, the increase from January to February was a modest, but still welcome, 10.5%.
One underlying trend that Deltek observed for the second half of 2016 was a continue decrease in the number of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) projects issued by state and local agencies.
As we moved into the final month of 2016, Deltek observed another drop in the number of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) projects released by state and local governments.
Over the past several months, the number of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) projects issued by state and local governments has seen a lot of fluctuation. There have been far more months with lower numbers in 2016 compared to 2015.
The month-over-month change was -2.6 percent in the total number of AEC projects issued in October. While overall project solicitations are down since July 2016, the total number of projects is actually higher than this period in 2015.
As we move closer to Election Day, questions continue to mount about what each candidate’s policy proposals will mean for the nation’s economy. One area that has received very little media attention is Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s plans for America’s ailing infrastructure.
In August 2016, Deltek observed an increase in the number of bids released month over month, however, in September 2016 the trend ticked downward, with a decline of 3.25 percent.
Last month, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) announced it would end the use of private prisons. While the percentage of state inmates in private prisons is relatively small, might this shift in DOJ policy lead to significant changes in the way that prisoners are housed locally and how those prisons are built?
Over the past few months, Deltek has observed a decline in the number of in solicitations released related to architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), until August. From July to August 2016, the number of solicitations increased by 6.4 percent.
