An Update to GovTribe Alerts

Marc Vogtman / Jan 4, 2016

We're rolled out a few changes to the Alerts page to improve user experience. Here's a quick summary of what we did.

What is this help page for?

Marc Vogtman / Nov 18, 2015

The government contracting market is a daunting one with lots of governing regulations, hundreds of standard operating procedures, thousands of acronyms, and sometimes peculiar definitions for things like "fair and open competition" or "transparency." On this help page we're going to publish some helpful content on how to get started in the market, how to use the information and tools here on GovTribe to get in the game, and how to pair what you do in the real world with the intelligence you gather on this site. Please let us know your burning questions. There's plenty to cover so tell us what you'd most like to know.

Where do you get your data?

Marc Vogtman / Nov 18, 2015

​Federal government contract opportunity data, what we call "Projects" on GovTribe, comes from FBO.gov. We mine it every 15 minutes, clean it up, connect it to the other data we have, and post it almost instantly.

​GovTribe receives all of its data from public federal government sources. Vendor information on our website comes from the System for Award Management (SAM.gov), which is where companies that sell to the government are required to register their business information. We update our vendor data monthly using a Public Data Package file provided by SAM.gov per the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

How do I reset my password?

Marc Vogtman / Nov 18, 2015

​If you are logged in, click the gear icon under your user name in the upper left corner of your screen in the side-bar. Type your new password in the "Password" box and retype it in the "Confirm Password" box. Then click the blue "Save" button at the bottom.

What's Your Probability of Win?

Nate Nash / May 27, 2015

It was early on a Friday morning. I had been awake all night, working with a team of people to get a proposal ready for a deal review. This was my first deal review and at this point, coffee had moved from stimulant to life support. After dusting the detritus of an all-nighter off my far from pressed suit, I walked into the deal review meeting. Shockingly, most of the people reviewing said deal were just getting started for the day. Must be nice.
