No one intimately knows small business contractors like FedGov.News. There are databases and search engines that can get you a wealth of information to sift through, but when it comes to knowing small business, no one comes close to FedGov.News. While most companies are giving you data points on the fact that Company X did a contract for $5,500 with Agency Y, FedGov.News provides the true who, what, where, when, and why of that transaction. We provide the exact information you need, not vague numbers. So, if you're looking for a company that sells a specific product or service, if you're looking for someone in a specific area, if you need a particular set-aside, we have the ability to match you with the right company who has the right experience.
As an example, let's say you need a small, veteran-owned business that does chemical engineering services in Massachusetts for a project that's estimated to be worth $120,000. For most database-like companies, you'll be able to narrow it down to a NAICS code like 541330 (Engineering Services), but that's obviously exceedingly broad. You might be able to narrow it down to set-asides, but maybe not. Almost certainly you won't know if the company has the desire or the skill set to complete the project. In brief, you need more information -- information that it will take some time to achieve. More to the point, oftentimes just placing the project on some listing like FBO or SUBNet won't always work because a large chunk of vendors either won't know about it, or they'll skip over it. Small businesses are notoriously difficult to get a hold of -- unless you are putting it right in their face, you will likely not get the best option for your requirements.
Nothing we do is automated. Everything is examined, researched, and we help go after the opportunities for you. Stop working with the best that just happened to show up, and actually get the best.
FedGov.News' parent company -- a not-for-profit organization -- actually spent its first year finding funding sources via sponsorship and grant money. Thus, it does not actually charge for its services directly. However, we do request a $100 donation to our charity campaign to support severely injured soldiers returning from combat. This is not negotiable.
Generally, participants in the "Buyer" side of FedGov.News must be one of the following: a large prime contractor or government entity.
