1.5 Trillion Reasons Your Company Should Start Bidding SLED Contracts

What if you could instantly triple the number of government contracts available for you to bid on? Well, if you’ve been bidding on federal contracts in the construction industry, we’ve got good news for you! Meridian West is excited to announce that we are expanding our offering to encompass the SLED market and here’s why your company should too.

What is SLED?

The state, local and education (SLED) procurement market is a massive opportunity for your company to expand its sales potential. According to Onvia, SLED procurement spending is more than three times larger than the amount spent by the federal market. That’s more than $1.5 trillion in total annual spending!

This huge budget results in more than 500,000 total bids and request for proposals (RFPs) published by SLED agencies annually, nearly half of which are designated to the construction industry. These bids and RFPs are numerous and diverse, meaning there are plenty of opportunities of all types and sizes for you to pursue. Here’s a breakdown of the SLED procurement spending by contract value in the construction industry.

SLED Procurement Spending by Contract Value in the Construction Industry

The SLED market is comprised of more than 90,000 purchasing entities across five government agency types: Education, Special District, County, City and State. The number of bids and RFPs released for the construction industry by agency type is broken down here.
