Small Business and technology come together to showcase opportunities for businesses nationwide
WASHINGTON -- Today, the Associate Administrator of the Office of Small Business Utilization Jerome Fletcher held a Google hangout around the Forecast of Contracting Opportunities Tool. GSA's internal technology team "18F" created this tool on behalf of the Office of Small Business Utilization, to make it easier for small businesses to locate contracting opportunities with federal agencies. With this tool, small businesses can now easily sort through forecasted contracting data by agency, contract award status, location, North American Industry Classification System Code and Contract Value.
Quote from Jerome : “The Forecast Tool provides a tremendous opportunity for GSA to make it easier for vendors to find forecasting information and opportunities in the federal government. This is a great example of the work the Office of Small Business Utilization does. We are always looking for new ways to improve communication and transparency to give businesses the edge they need to be successful in the federal market.”
