Combining Vendors in hōrd

Nate Nash / Dec 5, 2013

We're constantly trying to sort, tweak and refine the data that goes into our iPhone app, hōrd. Making government procurement data pretty has become an obsession around here, and remains one of our biggest challenges. But why? We want our users to have a delightful experience using our app, even if the data that powers it is anything but.

GovTribe realizes that competing in the world of federal contracting takes more than just finding and responding to opportunities. Keeping tabs on your competition and potential partners is critical to staying afloat in this highly competitive market. We built our app h​ōrd to help you do just that.

​Tom Temin from Federal News Radio downloaded hōrd and wrote an interesting overview of the app.

Thanks to Rebecca Kirkman at SmartCEO magazine for covering GovTribe and our app hōrd in the December issue. Cameo by the dogs of GovTribe.

Thanks to Marjorie Censer for the Cyber Monday coverage of hōrd in the Capital Business section of the Washington Post.

Thanks to Mohana Ravindranath for the article in the Washington Post on GovTribe and our app hōrd. As DC-area residents and readers of WaPo, we think this is awesome.

This week we've got another entry for our Agency Insight series. We dive in to government spending on international development by examining USAID. We create these infographics using data from our iPhone app, hōrd. As the only iPhone app of its kind, hōrd gives you the real time activity of the government procurement universe. Our customers use hōrd to make better pursuit decisions and ultimately win more work. Download today and start tracking your favorite agency, office, contracting officer, competitor, or project.

GovTribe is proud to announce the release of version 2.4 of our iPhone app hōrd. Based on your feedback, we focused on making it easier to find the stuff you care about. It's a big world out there and we want to make sure you can easily find stuff that's important to you. As such, we significantly improved Search and brought our Categories front and center. Read on to see the changes and learn what they can do for you.

This week we're, again, taking some liberties with our Agency Insight series to address an aspect of government procurement that's getting some attention in the media. Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts are an incredibly common tool used by agencies to more quickly award projects to companies. If you've seen our infographics on HHS, NASA, and DHS, you probably noticed that the largest contracts awarded in FY 13 for each of them were multi-million or multi-billion, multi-award, multi-year contracts. IDIQs (and their brethern, Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA)) are the primary vehicle through which government agencies obligate budgeted funds.
