Using the Forecast of Contracting Opportunities
The Forecast of Contracting Opportunities provides a wealth of information about GSA's projected acquisitions at or above a $25,000 threshold. Whether or not your small business is ready to compete for this business, the forecast's data elements, acronyms, regional breakdown, and explanation of terms gives the small business owner a window into GSA and what it buys, from contract type to socioeconomic category to region.
GSA highly recommends that small businesses review both pages of the Forecast: the forecast page, and the explanatory legend. The forecast gives small businesses a window into working for GSA's organization. The legend explains basic federal acquisition vocabulary to help a small business understand the details of a federal business opportunity.
The following video demonstrates how to use the Forecast.
