Interested in winning government contract work from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law but have no idea where to start?
Global management consulting firm, McKinsey & Company, has released a free online tool to help people explore programs and dollars included in the recent Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL).
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Navigator is an interactive wheel filled with dots, where the outside of the wheel represents the current year and the innermost region represents 2027. The color-coded dots represent deadlines for programs and spending on the various projects included in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), according to media reports.
The tool also contains filters to help those in the public sector — or those in the private sector interested in performing the work funded by the IIJA — narrow down projects. One could, for example, use the tool to display only competitive grants related to public transit.
The IIJA allocates $1.2 trillion in federal funding to a wide variety of programs ranging from environmental remediation to bridge repair to beefing up cybersecurity in state, local and tribal governments. About 39% of the funding available for states will be awarded in competitive grants, according to one analysis.
