Navigating the Federal Procurement Data System

April 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The federal government contracts with small businesses to buy products and services. Learn how your small business can navigate the process.

Interested in growing your small business through contracts with the federal government? Join the West Virginia Women’s Business Center and the Small Business Administration for Module 4of our 5-part series on how your small business can find and win federal government contracts. George Murray from the WV District Office of the Small Business Administration (SBA) will walk you through how to navigate the Navigating the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS)

FPDS is a publicly accessible federal government database documenting historic and real-time federal government contracting activity. That FPDS data can effectively shape marketing strategies to sell to the federal government, because that data can be used to understand which agencies buy what and when, when contracts are likely to come up for bid in the future, and more. This workshop teaches you how to use FPDS data to determine:

  • If/when federal agencies buy your product/service
  • Which federal agencies buy your product/service
  • From whom federal agencies have previously purchased your product/service (including whether contracts were set aside for small businesses and/or small businesses with federal contracting certifications—8(a), Woman-Owned Small Business, HUBZone, and/or Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses)
  • How much federal agencies have spent on your product/service
  • When current federal contracts will expire and, by inference, when new solicitations may be put out for bid

This webinar details how to craft and use FPDS queries and reports to transform FPDS data into actionable marketing strategies.

Learn all of this and more. Now’s the time to open the door on new opportunities for your small business!
