Government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels issue bid solicitations, also known as Requests for Proposals (RFPs) or Requests for Quotations (RFQs), to procure goods and services. These solicitations outline the requirements, scope, and evaluation criteria for selecting a winning bid. Businesses interested in working with the government can submit their bids or proposals in response to these solicitations. Winning a government contract can be a significant source of revenue and growth for businesses.

Finding bids and more....

To find government bid opportunities, businesses can search various websites and databases, such as:

  • Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps, now under

  • State procurement websites

  • Local government procurement portal.

Procurement opportunities: In addition to bidding on government contracts, businesses can explore procurement opportunities within government agencies or organizations. These opportunities may include becoming a subcontractor, participating in General Services Administration (GSA) schedules, or joining specific procurement programs like the Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) Business Development Program, HUBZone Program, or Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) Program.

Grants: Government grants are non-repayable funds provided by federal, state, or local agencies to support specific projects, programs, or initiatives. Grants are typically awarded to nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, research institutions, and sometimes small businesses or individuals, based on their project's alignment with the funding agency's objectives and priorities. Grants can be used for a wide range of purposes, such as research and development, infrastructure improvement, community development, education, or environmental conservation.
