Fedmine eases the procurement process for contracting officers:
Comprehensive Federal Spending Information
Fedmine is the only data aggregator with specialized technology in the federal sector capable of combining critical information from multiple sources and consolidating it into a single platform with a powerful user-friendly application. You gain access to quick analysis on everything from contract awards to federal business opportunities and federal spending across 15 concurrent years. Analyze specific topics, for example; analysis of FPDS-NG Awards by Solicitation procedure, or compare DoD solicitations by set-asides to full and open competition and single out from the latter group awards that went to small business so you can set them aside for small business in the future. Full drill-down across all agencies simultaneously provides you with instant knowledge of the most accessible markets you can increase small business participation.
Vendor Selection Diligence
Fedmine offers extensive up-to-date information on every current federal prime contractor, including all registered in SAM. Conduct your federal market research with real-time visibility into vendor past performance history, or elect to receive daily federal contract award alerts on interested vendors for any agency contracting office(s). If you are in the middle of a procurement process contemplating FAR Part 8 and FAR Part 13 types of contract awards, our rich vendor profiles contain all federal spending reports you will need.
Vendor Selection Bid Match
If you routinely check CPARS, EPLS, or FAPIIS prior to making small business awards to meet prime contracting goals, or plan to send out a competitive bid notice to select vendors or post to FBO (or beta.SAM.gov), then there is no better destination on the Internet to match federal contractors to open bid solicitations than Fedmine. You can obtain rich data on any federal contractor with one-click.
Share Best Practices
Take a look at what other Federal Agencies are doing. Through Fedmine, you can study how other Agencies distribute their contracts among vendors, how they utilize small businesses, or how they coordinate one contract among multiple vendors. Identify peer contacts and reach out to them to collaborate on acquisition strategies to meet goals.
Set up alerts
Flag agencies, industries, contractors or contract opportunities that you wish to follow and immediately receive alerts when activity occurs. Be as broad or as specific as you like. You can also obtain rare reports that provide meaningful information on demand.
Easy to use tool for searches
Finding what you’re looking for in Fedmine is simple—you can get as detailed as you need by adding layers of criteria. Search by agency for each NAICS industry code, contractor revenue size, number of employees, geographical location, contract size, or specific business and see real-time as well as historical information. You may even want to provide a pipeline spreadsheet with incumbent contractor information with links to the original solicitation.
Customized Daily Updatable Reports
You can use the standard reports already set up in Fedmine, or build your own to see them update automatically on a daily basis. Save templates then assign them to coworkers. Add them to your Fedmine MarketView dashboard and quickly access them fully updated in real-time as new information becomes available. Download all subcontractors doing business with a particular agency with full transaction and contact details.
Contracting Officers and their Technical Representatives are true partners to one another with program managers. Knowing how to collectively identify the right contractor can help save time and money, strengthening their rapport. Fedmine empowers each individual in this partnership to quickly locate businesses large and small, from First Timers (the vendors newly ushered into the contracting arena ─ this number is almost 35,000 each year as tracked by Fedmine) to established players.
