Defense will merge site for vendors with FedBizOpps

To reduce duplicative functions, the Office of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy has announced it will shut down the Defense Department's Business Opportunities Web site by the end of fiscal 2004 and transfer its functions to the Federal Business Opportunities site, www.fedbizopps.gov.

DODBusOpps was created in 1999 as the first government Web site to offer vendors a single Web location for all military service solicitations, said program manager Richard Clark in a release. Since then, thousands of vendors have visited DODBusOpps to use the automated solicitation mailing service and wireless access services.

"Eliminating the DOD Web presence will make it easier for vendors to find contracting opportunities in a single location," Clark said. "Moreover, we are meeting the e-gov mandate to simplify and unify the e-business jungle."
