Despite increased spending and high numbers of government bids and RFPs, we sometimes see awarded contracts with only 2 bidders.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 9, 2010
BidPrime.com, an online subscription service providing government bids and contract intelligence to businesses, released a report detailing key government contracts and RFPs issued at the state and local level in the United States. In addition, the report lists each state's most commonly requested items or services, and the number of bids and RFPs issued by state agencies, cities, counties, and school districts.
"This serves as a valuable analytical resource for companies projecting new locales for business across the nation," said Jim Ward, BidPrime's VP of Business Development. "Government spending will remain the backbone of this economic recovery, and will remain a requirement for every succeeding business in boosting their bottom lines."
The analysis covers each state, listing the most common bids for products and services for each. In January 2009, the top government bids and contracts wanted nationwide included automobiles, software, networking/IT/ERP staffing, janitorial services, demolition services, construction (road, building, sewer, bridge), and printing services.
Last January alone, BidPrime tracked 39,281 new bids across the nation and just over 30,000 of those bids were at the state and local level. "Almost 3 trillion dollars will be spent this year by state and local governments," said Stephen Hetzel, BidPrime's Chief Operating Officer. "Despite increased spending and high numbers of government bids and RFPs, we sometimes see awarded contracts with only 2 bidders. This demonstrates the lack of awareness about these bids and thus underscores the great value of BidPrime's services."
