Let's face facts. Finding federal business opportunities that truly match what your firm does is more than just challenging. And staying on top of how government buys and their use of various types of government contracts is always challenging seems to ever change. And putting together a government proposal is not an easy chore, especially in the early days. So what is a business to do, especially a business that has limited time and resources to analyze federal buying habits, preferences and methods.
The essential federal business opportunities website is fedbizopps (fedbizopps.gov), which allows you to find any Federal RFP (RFP means government request for proposal) and search through all the pending bid opportunities. Fed Bids that don't appear here may be available only to GSA contractors through GSA's eBuy system.
Many private sector services exist that identify federal business opportunities for a fee. You input your key words, NAICS, PCS and FSC codes and you receive daily emails with many...often too many bid opportunities. But how many of those opportunities really meet your criteria. Very few! Anyone who has used eBuy knows that you will often receive dozens of alerts to bids that fall under your SIN, but have nothing to do with your services or product offerings. For those firms in highly specialized areas, just figuring out what key words an agency procurement officer might use is challenging. They may use NAICS codes you hadn't even contemplated.
