The Advanced Search page in Project Center provides you with more refinement options. Here are the ways you can narrow your search:
The Project Center search page has one field for keywords, and all of them will be found in the each of your search results. The Advanced Search page has three fields for keywords, and all three can be used at the same time.
You can search for projects by the following publication-date ranges: Last 7 days, last 30 days, last 90 days, last 1 year, all dates, or a custom date range you specify.
The geographic location of the agency associated with the project. Search by states, cities, counties, and MSAs (Metropolitan Statistical Areas).
You have 13 different choices of industry verticals (plus an "Other" category) to include with your search parameters.
The stages of the procurement process are divided into three categories: Pre-announcement (such as an Advance Notice), Announcement (i.e., bid or RFP), and Post-announcement (award, bid results, or sole source).
The Federal Supply Classification (FSC) code parameters include Research and Development, Services, and Supplies and Equipment.
Level of Government
You can search for spending plans issued by agencies at the city/town, county, state and federal level as well as by special districts and school districts.
You can refine a search according to agencies' area of focus or jurisdiction, such as Education, General Purpose, Public Safety, and Transportation.
These allow you to narrow your search based on the set-aside requirements of projects (e.g., participation by a Small Disadvantaged Business) and on the dollar range of the awarded contract value of the projects. You also have the option either to include GSA Schedule-related contracts in your results or to filter them out.
In addition to being able to narrow your search by the projects' publication date, you can also refine searches by the bid/proposal submittal date and the date of the pre-bid meeting (for example, next 7 days, 14 days, 30 days, etc.).
