Market Research Information

If you are thinking about getting started in government contracting, the first thing to do is some market research about the types of opportunities that might be out there for your business. What agencies buy your products/services? What sales volume can you expect? How does the agency buy?

A good place to begin your market research is by looking at what types of opportunities are available at FBO.gov. Another source is Outreach Systems iSearch.

Reviewing government agency forecast data can also provide beneficial insight into regularly purchased buys and anticipated procurement opportunities.

Once you have a sense of the type of sales you expect to make, it makes good sense to establish some strategic plans for government contracting for your business.
