Forecast of Contracting Opportunities

Now it’s even easier to find out about small business contracting opportunities thanks to this web-based tool.

The GSA Forecast of Contracting Opportunities Tool provides information on planned federal contracting opportunities. The tool assists with acquisition planning by helping vendors learn about potential prime contracting opportunities early in the process. Users can easily filter the data by agency, location (place of performance), NAICS Code, contract type, and more.

The GSA Forecast Tool User Guide [PDF - 76 KB] provides tips on how to use the tool and take advantage of its features.
