On Nov. 12, 2019, the FedBizOps website FBO.Gov was retired, and beta.SAM.Gov has taken its place as the new authoritative source for Contract Opportunities.
For the most part, the transition appears to have gone smoothly, according to the
General Services Administration (click here to listen to a recent interview with a GSA senior executive on the Federal News Network
about the current status of “Contract Opportunities” at BETA.SAM.GOV).
There are additional resources posted at the beta.SAM.Gov website to provide information and training for contractors.
We will post additional information, tips, and future updates about the new Contract
Opportunities website - so, stay tuned!
If you have ideas or suggestions for improvement, please use the “provide feedback”
button on the beta.SAM.gov website.If you would like to find small business events and vendor collaboration opportunities,
look for these specific links toward the top of the page when you visit the Contracting
Opportunities page on the beta.SAM.Gov website. If you are logged in, you can save
these searches after clicking on the applicable links to quickly access these opportunities
in the future.
PTAC counselors play a significant role in supporting contractors when systems change
in the federal marketplace. If you are having trouble with anything related to the
new beta.SAM.gov website, make sure to contact your Arkansas PTAC counselor. We are just a phone call
or email away. It is also important to remember that there are firms that charge small businesses
for assistance with things like SAM registration and FBO transition support. Always
remember that you can get this support at no cost through your local PTAC.
