Event description



This webinar is a follow up to our webinar Market Research #1: Discovering Federal Marketplace Opportunities scheduled for 4/1 at 10am PST.


Many federal COVID-19 related contracting opportunities, particularly opportunities for less than the revised micropurchase threshold of $20,000, may not be posted to beta.sam due to national emergency acquisition changes. This means it is even more important than ever to perform market research to identify contacts who may be interested in purchasing your supplies or services.


FPDS is a free resource containing detailed historical purchasing data for all purchases over $3,000 and all modifications to these contracts, allowing the government and the public to understand where tax dollars are spent. The ability to look at contracts across federal government agencies is a key component in market research for businesses that want to do business with the federal government. FPDS provides an unmatched and underutilized opportunity for businesses to better assess where money is being spent, thereby offering opportunities to better determine how to most effectively and efficiently concentrate their marketing resources.

During this webinar, we will explore the FPDS system, including the reports section. The reports available in FPDS can help you understand the Who, What, Where, When and How of government spending.

In this webinar, participants will learn:

  • What is the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS)?
  • How can I use FPDS to find potential marketing opportunities for my business?
  • How to Search using EZ Search
  • How to Use Standard Reports to Obtain Market Research Data
  • Understanding Ad Hoc Reporting Capability

Information on how to join the webinar will be sent with your regisrtration confirmation.
