- don’t know who you are.
- I don’t know your company.
- I don’t know your company’s product.
- I don’t know what your company stands for.
- I don’t know your company’s customers.
- I don’t know your company’s record.
- I don’t know your company’s reputation.

Focus on Prospect Facts
DEC’s roots are firmly grounded with our award winning planning tool Prospect Facts. For over twenty years Prospect Facts has delivered the best early head’s up information available anywhere. Prospect Facts covers all of Georgia and is strictly private sector, non-governmental construction. Each week Prospect Facts spotlights 15-25 projects in the early to mid-planning stages. You’ll receive timely information tailored to the needs of companies that understand the importance of following projects at an early stage either due to specification requirements or to have time to develop relationships.
Typical clients for Prospect Facts are financial institutions keeping up with the market, subs and suppliers that need to have their product/service specified by the architect/engineer, general contractors, A&E firms, geotechnical and site support people and others that want to pick and choose their targets rather than work just at the bid stage. Prospect Facts always includes the proposed scope of work, good contact information and the best timing information available. Another major plus, a DEC exclusive, is access to our research department. Utilize our team of researchers, with an average of 16 years working for us, to find out additional information on both projects we have published on in the past or even for projects that you may become aware of through other means. Whatever the case, only DEC actually lets you speak to a live researcher.
Many members got hooked on Prospect Facts only after working with our Bid Facts service first. Planning information requires a bit more discipline than letting the Bid Calendar govern your bidding decisions. The advantage of working planning information is generally higher margins overall and the ability to develop relationships that will lead you to other opportunities not generally known on the street.
