Government RFP Site relaunches with Robust Freemium option for all industries , a clearinghouse for leads and intelligence about government contracts, has announced a major rebranding and relaunch of the site, which now features the ability for anyone to create a free account and receive no-cost bid notices of contracting opportunities in every industry at the Federal, state, and local levels. This relaunch makes the government RFP lead site with the most robust freemium option commercially available. enables anyone to specify their particular interests from among ten top-level industries, from professional services to construction to finance and technology and beyond. Users can set preferences to be notified about leads in nearly sixty sub-industries, such as specialty trade construction, systems development, business services, and others, covering every conceivable type of government purchase.

For existing users, the new site offers all of the functionality and data access that it has always provided, plus the ability to let users tap into other market opportunities through a new, pay-as-you-go model offering users the opportunity to buy and apply credits on the site to access specific information about specific contracts. The new site also features a vibrant new look and feel.

For organizations that do not typically compete in the public sector, or that do so infrequently, the site lets users take an opportunistic approach to pursuing opportunities by monetizing access to data and services on demand, such as: 

  • Micro-transaction costs to download documents and submit anonymous questions to buyers.
  • The ability to download detailed historical documents related to specific contracts showing how decision makers selected vendors in the past, including pricing, that can be used to make decisions on current procurements.
  • The ability to order open records follow up on demand to find out, anonymously, what happened with bids your organization has recently submitted.
  • The ability to subscribe to the lifecycle of individual contracting opportunities, to be notified when key events happen over time, such as the award of a contract, availability of open records, or impending expiration of existing contracts.

The relaunch has been more than three years in the making, and also offers organizations the option to tap into Application Program Interfaces (APIs) to feed sales leads directly into their customer relationship management (CRM) systems. This lets organizations control data traffic and increases organizational awareness of who is responsible for various leads.
