Procurement Listings Go Online

letters@govexec.com

The federal government is providing access to the Commerce Business Daily for free for the first time in the procurement notice publication's history.

The Commerce Business Daily, which announces federal contracts worth more than $25,000, is now available online at CBDNet (cbdnet.access.gpo.gov) through a partnership between the Commerce Department and the Government Printing Office.

"With free access to procurement listings, prospective vendors can easily find out about potential contracts and bid on the work, resulting in more competitive pricing and cost savings for the government," said Kenneth Buck, the acting procurement executive at the Commerce Department. "And because contractors don't have to pay for access to this information, it provides a level playing field for small and large vendors alike."

A year's subscription to the paper version of the Commerce Business Daily costs between $275 and $324.

CBDNet also allows contracting officials to submit notices to the Commerce Business Daily using their Web browsers. The notices are immediately posted on CBDNet and within two days to the paper version of the Commerce Business Daily.
