Site gets new job

This fall, a Web portal will begin replacing the Commerce Business Daily as the authoritative source of information about federal procurements of more than $25,000.

The General Services Administration's FedBizOpps site, at www.fedbizopps.gov, has been designated the single source of information on large procurements.

Under an interim Federal Acquisition Regulation rule published in the Federal Register May 16, agencies have until Oct. 1 to begin posting their buys on the site. The regulation is open for public comment until July 16.

Under proposed rules, the Commerce Business Daily also will publish the notices until Jan. 1. After that, agencies no longer have to submit their large procurements for the daily publication.

Twenty-nine agencies now use FedBizOpps, and more than 90,000 vendors have registered to receive e-mail notices of opportunities, GSA officials said. The site is searchable by solicitation number, date, procurement classification code and agency.
