💡 Anna Barnett, BidPrime's VP of Client Services: "So far this year, we have seen that government agencies are inclined towards investing in smart city solutions, including traffic management, public safety, waste management, and energy optimization. Our BidPrime analysts note that vendors offering scalable smart city solutions can have an advantage in securing these government contracts."
* Many of these opportunities are originating from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). You can see this solicitation activity by visiting our dedicated American Jobs Plan Contract Opportunities page.
🔍 We analyzed many thousands of requests for proposals (RFPs) and procurement records from government databases, including BidPrime and Beacon Bid. By identifying common industries and keywords mentioned in these documents, we gained valuable insights into the needs of government agencies to date in 2023.

US Government Agencies and Companies Hit in Global Cyberattack
Several US federal government agencies and hundreds of companies have fallen victim to a global cyberattack orchestrated by Russian cybercriminals. The attack exploits a vulnerability in widely used software, known as MOVEit. The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is actively working to support affected federal agencies and understand the extent of the impacts.
🛡️ Preventing Cyberattacks: What Governments Can Do
To prevent such cyberattacks, governments can take the following measures:
1️⃣ Enhance Cybersecurity Infrastructure: Governments should invest in robust cybersecurity infrastructure, including advanced threat detection systems and regular security assessments. By strengthening their defenses, governments can better protect sensitive information and detect potential threats before they cause significant harm.
2️⃣ Strengthen Partnerships: Collaboration between government agencies, international organizations, and private sector entities is crucial for sharing threat intelligence and coordinating responses to cyber threats. By fostering strong partnerships, governments can leverage the expertise and resources of various stakeholders to enhance their collective cybersecurity posture.
3️⃣ Implement Strict Security Protocols: Governments must enforce stringent security protocols to mitigate the risk of cyberattacks. Regular software updates and patches help address known vulnerabilities, while strong access controls and multi-factor authentication enhance system security. By prioritizing security protocols, governments can significantly reduce their susceptibility to cyber threats.
Just the basics: We spelled out what governments can do to prevent cyberattacks and shield against cybercriminals. In addition, we described how BidPrime shares and distributes cybersecurity-related bids and RFPs, plays a crucial role in strengthening the cybersecurity capabilities of government agencies and organizations, while also assisting cybersecurity-related service and solution providers in identifying applicable opportunities originating from the public sector.
Of course, this analysis includes current, sample cybersecurity-related bids and RFPs.

Enhancing Security: United States Government Agencies Embrace Access Control Solutions
BidPrime reported how governments at all levels in the United States are prioritizing access control solutions to strengthen security measures and protect their communities. From small towns to large cities, and counties to states, government entities are investing in advanced access control systems, services, and equipment. In small towns, access control solutions are being implemented in public buildings and facilities, utilizing keycard or biometric authentication methods to restrict access.
A notable trend is the collaborative efforts between different government entities to establish standardized access control protocols. Towns, cities, counties, and states are sharing best practices, adopting common technology platforms, and integrating security systems, resulting in an efficient and coordinated security infrastructure across jurisdictions. Funding initiatives are also supporting these implementations. Grants and subsidies from federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, play a significant role in financing security initiatives. Public-private partnerships are leveraged to pool resources and expertise, ensuring sustainable access control implementations without straining budgets.

Just the basics: Overall, the adoption of access control solutions by United States government agencies is aimed at fortifying critical infrastructure, protecting public facilities, and ensuring the safety of residents.
