Bid Match
Locating government bid opportunities can be very time consuming! Electronic bid matching scans a variety of government agencies to provide a report specific to your company's product or service. Bid Match provides a wide variety of government bid opportunities, including those from the FedBizOpps database, DLA's bulletin boards, various EDI systems, state and local agencies, and foreign entities. To ensure that you see only those bids you are interested in, we will help you develop search profiles, containing keywords, Product Service Codes (PSC/FSCs), National Stock Numbers (NSNs), Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes. For more information on Bid Match, please contact the PTAC in your area.

Forms and Publications
Government contracts/solicitations frequently refer to documents to explain rules and regulations that must be followed under the government contract at hand. If you are in need of a government form or publication, see the forms and publications links on our links page to find the information you need, or contact the PTAC in your area.

Government Registrations

Subcontracting Assistance
The Federal Government has a legislated policy that small, small disadvantaged, 8(a) certified, women-owned small, HUBZone, veteran owned, and service disabled veteran owned concerns shall have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in the performance of Federal contracts. Federal contractors are required to carry out this policy in the awarding of subcontracts to the fullest extent consistent with the efficient performance of the contract. The PTACs can help small businesses in identifying subcontracting opportunities.
