Why IMS?

We are a vital part of your business development team, and we deliver leads.

The glue that bonds our data together is customer service. There’s none like it in the research industry. Have a question about a specific project? Need to change your Target Markets, Disciplines or Regions? IMS has real people with real answers. Keeping you Ahead Of The Curve is what we’re all about.

Advance Notice Bid Opportunities.

Finding out about government bid opportunities ahead of the curve is standard operating procedure for IMS. Being a true public sector project research firm, our daily project leads and agency-verified Advance Notices make our lead research unique. Advance Notices give information prior to official agency publication allowing time to strategize on teaming opportunities and manage the RFP/RFQ/SOQ process way before the deadline.

Daily verified project information and over 35,000 Agency contacts.

A client-privileged website database includes research from thousands of public agencies such as CIPs, budgets, bond measure reports, newspaper articles and legislative agendas. This remarkable tool saves time by showing a history of an agency’s projects and direct links to their home and contact pages. Our database will quickly become an essential tool for your long range planning efforts.

Cradle-to-grave lifecycle of public sector projects.

Our Awarded Contract Report (ACR) completes the cradle-to-grave lifecycle of government projects. The ability to know which firms are winning projects has become a key element of marketplace knowledge. The ACR is a valuable tool for architecture, engineering and construction firms for providing that data.
