How Can I Find Out Which Companies Have Been Awarded Government Contracts?
Being prepared is essential to building your blueprint to success. In order to be prepared, we must take the time to do a bit of research. The internet has provided us the means to find information at the touch of our fingertips. To your benefit, you can easily discover which companies have been awarded government contracts.
Two ways to find out which companies have been awarded government contracts, are through the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS).
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) established a single- searchable website, accessible to the public at no cost.
Each federal award includes:
- the name of the entity receiving the award
- the amount of the award
- information on the award including transaction type
- the funding agency, etc.
- the location of the entity receiving the award
All of the information you would need to discover not only who but the details of the award are only a search away.
For those seeking an alternative, the Federal Procurement Data System- Next Generation FPDS, is a comparable site that allows users to create reports based on searchable criteria.
The FPDS has a wider variety of features that can be explored by more advanced users. It works as a quick and easy “Google” equivalent. Just type in your NAICS or PSC code, and it will yield the required results.
All in all, the OMB and the FPDS are great ways to find out which companies have been awarded government contracts. On the plus side, neither website requires that you create an account and both are FREE to use.
