The Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) is a resource that can help you to identify new markets, and new customers. FPDS data can provide a better understanding of what the federal government is buying, when they are buying and how they are buying. Have you ever wondered if being a GSA Schedule contractor makes sense – really makes sense? Or, have you wondered which agency or agencies your competition is selling to and what they are selling? Do you have a new product and/or a service and would like to see if there are federal opportunities? These are only a few of the questions that FPDS data can help to answer. This first Webinar will provide an overview of the data and the various tools that can be used to access the data – ezSearch, Standard Reports and adhoc Reports. The session will end with an overview of how to analyze the data using MS Excel’s Pivot Table tool.
