The Federal Procurement Data System is the Vendor’s crystal ball into the world of federal purchases. Like the magic 8 ball, if you ask it (FPDS) a question it will provide an answer. Unlike the magic 8 ball, FPDS will provide data – names, locations, amounts. Whether you want to see which contracting offices purchase a specific NAICS code, who your competitors are selling to or which organizations use a GSA Schedule FPDS can help you answer these questions and many more. 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.
