Give Me 5: Straight Answers About How FPDS-NG Support GovCon Business Development

Guest Speaker: Guy Timberlake, Chief Visionary, The American Small Business Coalition

Wednesday, August 22, 2018 * 2:00 eastern / 1:00 central / 11:00 pacific

If previous attempts at extracting information from FPDS-NG have left you frustrated, be sure to tune in to this Give Me 5 presentation! That’s because Guy Timberlake of The American Small Business Coalition will discuss and demonstrate why and how the Federal Procurement Data System-Next Generation (FPDS-NG) is a powerful tool companies can leverage to support the development of insights, intelligence and relationships associated with finding and winning federal contract and subcontract opportunities. The structure of the presentation will include background information on important terms and classification systems used in FPDS-NG followed by a live overview of the 3 query types (ezSearch, Standard Reports and Ad Hoc) followed by a demonstration of querying, filtering, capturing and visualizing information from the system to answer specific questions such as:

  • Which agencies buy what I sell?
  • How do they buy what I sell?
  • How much of what I sell do they buy?
  • Who do they currently buy from?
  • Which agencies have contracting activities in a certain location (city, state, congressional district, etc.)?
  • and more!
