People Defined

On GovTribe, a Person is a Contracting Officer, Contracting Specialist, or other point-of-contact for a Project or Contract. We maintain a database of all People who have appeared on a federal Project or Contract and provide summary performance and activity information about their procurement activity. We also make it possible to use a Person as a starting point to browse and search through Project information.
