    Have you ever thought about beginning to sell your product or service to the government, but weren’t exactly sure where to start? Adapting your business model to include government bidding seems quite difficult.... Contracting with government agencies is generally based on the same principles as commercial contracting, but with some key differences.

    The first step in doing business with the government is making a plan for beginning (or growing) your government business. This plan should include determining the exact geographic area that you want to conduct business in and a narrowed down list of NAICS or NIGP codes on which to focus. In addition, you need to decide which types of agencies you want to contract with. Different types of agencies have different ways of posting bids and RFPs, so specializing in one type at first may help you to hit the ground running. Some examples of these different types are:

    -General (all levels) government procurement
    -Federal procurement
    -State procurement
    -County procurement
    -City procurement
    -Municipal procurement (schools, hospitals, etc.)
    -Local procurement

    So.... how do you guys work to achieve the best match ? How to get the best Government Bids through websites like bidnet, Onvia... BidSycn ?

    Not every business is a jungle - that usually takes Government to some point ;)

    note - the oldest bid aggregation system (that I know, back in 1983) is Bidnet ....
