Recommended Posts

To small, minority, women-owned, veteran businesses, etc.; in regard to contracting; what type of information do you search for on the internet?

Thanks.

Are you referring to searching for business opportunities on the internet?

Any kind of information that you search for in regard to contracting. I'm trying to improve the small business page and make it more relevant. Thanks.

Bob,

A couple things come to mind. One is information about agencies - what their missions are, what are the various programs that support those missions, where are those located both physically and organizationally within the agencies, and who they key contracts are. The second are large businesses they can team up with for new opportunites and who they can subcontract with.

Fed Biz Opps is the primary source to find small business setaside opportunities.

Each Department has a small business office / office of small and disadvantaged business utilization so it would be helpful to link to these pages. This is a great place to start in each agency.

Links to the SBA are also helpful.

Based on recent (and somewhat painful) experience, a step-by-step "how to" guide on registering as a federal contractor and getting set up to submit invoices so you can receive electronic payments for DoD purchaser orders.

It really is rare for a company to win a procurement and not know of it before it appears in FedBizOpps. In other words if a company just gets started doing marketing and preparing a proposal when the announcement appears, they are doomed most of the time. The idea though about about links to small business/OSDBU is a good one.
