Search within bid documents

Procurement Search is a whole new kind of tool to help vendors find government contracting opportunities.  Often, when vendors are trying to work with you, they’ll start by reading over your list of bid opportunities.

But when they discover that they’re spending so much time reading through contract documents, just to learn their firm doesn’t fit the contract, they can become overwhelmed and give up.

We let vendors search within your bid documents, so more small and state-certified firms can tell at a glance if this is the contract or RFP for them.

Work with more qualified, capable firms in your local community. We can help.
