Marketplace opens online

February 10, 2013

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Small Business Administration, in conjunction with the White House’s Presidential Innovation Fellows, recently launched a pilot version of RFP-EZ, an  online marketplace that streamlines the government contracting process, making it simpler for small businesses to find and bid on low-dollar contracts from federal agencies.

The program allows the government to source low-cost, high-impact solutions from innovative technology companies. A limited number of low-dollar contracts through RFP-EZ are available at http://rfpez.sba.gov. If successful, the pilot will be expanded to include more contracts for a more diverse group of start-ups.

By simply creating a company profile on the beta site, small businesses can search and bid for contracts relevant to their skill sets. They can search for an opportunity, see a statement of work and bid through the RFP-EZ Web interface.

For more information, go to www.whitehouse.gov/innovationfellows.
