All About Protests

Marc Vogtman / May 13, 2014

Last week we looked at the process of getting to contract award, introducing the Purse String Index for HHS and DHS. This week we’re taking a peek at what sometimes happens post-award – protests. A protest is an official challenge to the award or proposed award of a contract, or a challenge to the terms of a solicitation for a contract.

GovTribe deals in data. Gobs and gobs of government contract data. We use that data to provide insights into the world of federal contracting through our apps and Custom Reports.

One of the most important components of the federal contracting market is the point of contact for an opportunity. The point of contact (usually a Contracting Officer or CO) is often the only source of information about current and future contracts.

The fine folks over at GSA's new-fangled startup 18F are taking a rather refreshing approach to furthering the cause of open government data.

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.
