Whate is the approximate breakdown of US SLED (state, local, education) contracting by they key sectors e.g. construction, IT, security, etc, etc.
i.e. if you split what SLED institutions spend on contractors into the key areas, what does that look like?

Please have a look at Slide 12 in this powerpoint:
The SLED Market - Tech Data Corporation
Some of the overview slides may be of interest as well.
Is the TX data of interest? Or is it too narrow (one state) to be of use?

The fact that it is one state is fine.
However, I think it is a subset of what I want e.g. there is no construction, no sanitation, health, security, no social services. Probably no software.
(As a personal aside, $424M on food?).

Check out slides 4 and 5:
STATE & LOCAL PROCUREMENT SNAPSHOT
That's the most detail I've seen for this market.

That's interesting but it doesn't tell me the size - it tells me growth and number of contracts, but contracts will vary significantly by size.

While not providing exact dollar amounts, the following chart profiles the mix of low ($25K - $99K), mid ($100K - $999K) and high value (($1M+) projects by industry.

Does this help?

JD found some nice sources, above.
I came across detailed spending for the state of Virginia:

P.S. The Virginia site has tools (that I haven't tried yet) to conduct your own analysis of procurement activities.
