  • The FedBizOpps (FBO)

    The FedBizOpps (FBO) lists notices of proposed government procurement actions, contract awards, sales of government property, and other procurement information. A new edition of the FBO is issued every business day. Each edition contains approximately 500-1,000 notices. Each notice appears in the FBO only once.

    All Federal procurement offices are required to announce proposed procurement actions over $25,000 and contract awards over $25,000, that are likely to result in the award of any subcontracts, in the FBO.

    General Exceptions: The FBO usually does not list procurement notices for; (1) classified services or supplies, (2) services or supplies that are required immediately due to an unusual or compelling emergency, (3) services or supplies that are required from specified sources as a result of the terms of an international agreement or treaty, (4) services or supplies where U.S. law specifies a specific source or requires that the procurement be made by another federal agency, (5) certain utility services where only one source is available, (6) a contract action where an order is placed under a requirements contract, (7) a contract action that would result from the acceptance of a proposal under the Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982, (8) a contract action that would disclose or jeopardize innovative research, (9) perishable supplies, (10) resale of brand name commercial items, (11) supplies or services obtained under the terms of an existing contract that was previously announced in the FBO, (12) services and supplies obtained by the Department of Defense which will be performed or made outside the U.S., its possessions, Puerto Rico, and only local sources will be solicited, and (13) contract actions made through FACNET that meet acquisition threshold regulations. For complete information regarding exceptions, see the Federal Acquisition Regulation subpart 5.202.
