What is the market sector field?
The market sector field allows you to easily track the market sector of a bid. Example sectors include:
- Education - K12
- Government / Civic
- Highway / Street
- Office - Medical
- Residential - Multifamily
The field includes 54 different sectors, which were adopted from the list used by the U.S. Department of Labor. Once you add the market sector to a bid, you can view this in the “Reports” section of your Bid Board.
