Onvia’s market research team has released the latest in its series of quarterly reports, the State and Local Procurement Snapshot for Q4 2017.
Our research found that the state, local and education (SLED) market posted the strongest quarter of the year, at 5.5% increase of government bids and RFPs. This growth was experienced broadly across most of the 12 major industry sectors, and saw increases in government contracting opportunities from state, local and education government agencies.
If you are involved in sales, marketing or business development and your company deals with selling to the public sector, you’ll know that the state and local (SLED) government market is vast, complex and contains many challenges. Your firm must meet these challenges to build a winning public sector sales strategy.
