On a daily basis MHC scans over 10000 websites nationally. In Washington State we scan over 300 websites daily. We have six reporters covering Washington state project news augmented by teams offshore as well as “stringer reps”. Our Pre-planning and delayed projects are updated approximately every eight months planning every six months final planning every four months. Bidding projects get updated about every week during the bid process. Specialized categories down to the project type (healthcare multifamily commercial highway education etc.) stage of project development valuation of project location (even a simple word search through the specifications) for projects can be sent daily or weekly to your email in-box rather than spending time on searches yourself.
