Here are the steps you should follow to build a pipeline of future term-contract opportunities.
Once you’ve chosen your search parameters, you can proceed with your search from the main search page, or you can further refine your search results by clicking the “Advanced Search” link below the “Search” button. You also have the option to make these parameters your default for future searches.
On the Advanced Search page, you’ll notice that you have the ability to narrow your search results by parameters specific to term contracts, including contract value, expiration date, and term.
After you’ve submitted your search parameters, your search results will be displayed with information most important to recurring contracts and awards, including award value, the awarded vendor or vendors, and the contract end date when available and applicable.
Once you’ve created a search that reflects your market, you can quickly build a pipeline of future expiring term-contract opportunities based on these results. To do this, click the “Export results” button, which creates a spreadsheet of all the information available for each term-contract result in your search. The export will generate an Excel file with the first 1,000 results in your search, and the file will be emailed to you within a few minutes of starting the export. If your search results exceed 1,000 records, you can split your search into smaller searches by time frame so you can export an entire search result set each time.
