Why should I pay for your service when I can find government opportunities for free online?
Most companies are doing more with less these days. It can take hours - days - to find the time to research government RFP requests - if you can find them. By then, other companies may already be two steps ahead of you.

Public Purchase sends targeted information directly to your inbox each day. You know you are given precisely the RFP's that apply to your sector and your product or service. Just one winning RFP could EASILY pay for our service.

How do you obtain your government agency information?
There are many sources for government information - government agency websites, newspapers, contract reports, electronic data feeds and downloads, to name just a few. Public Purchase uses the latest technologies to scan tens of thousands of bid opportunities and present the ones that target your specific business needs.

How many government agencies and industry categories do you cover?
Currently, we cover 9,130 government agencies that bid across 308 industry categories. State and local government bids - sought after by a smaller group of vendors and therefore easier to win - are also available for a subscription fee.

Why is this a good time to go after government contracts?
The government is by far the nation's largest customer. And now more so than ever! The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) was designed to spur economic growth in the midst of a deep nationwide recession. The price tag - $787 BILLION - has led to soaring federal spending, and federal bids across almost every industry.

For the construction industry alone, the law allocates $150 billion to repair our country's bridges, roads and mass transit systems. The time is now for those in EVERY INDUSTRY to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity.

How do you match the bid to our notification preferences?
We look at a number of factors such as industry selection and geographic preferences, and then filter down according to specific product and service keywords. We then send active sales leads and upcoming bids directly to your email inbox.

As a small business, is your service a good fit for us?
Most government sales opportunities under $100,000 are exclusively set aside for small businesses. In fact, last year alone, small businesses received a record $93.3 billion in sales from the federal government. It is certainly worth your while to bid for government contracts.

Is it worth my while to "upgrade" to Bid Syndication?
Yes, if you want to take advantage of maximum opportunities and convenience. Instead of 210 government agencies, you can gain access to 7,590+ agencies, filtered by your business service/product and sector and delivered straight to your mailbox.

Is your service confined to just one person or can the entire company use it?
There is absolutely no limit to the number of users per company.
