How to research standard federal categories for your business verticals

NAICS (pronounced NAKES) Codes are a classification within the North American Industry Classification System, which was developed for use by Federal Statistical Agencies for the collection, analysis and publication of statistical data related to the US Economy. Product and Service Codes (PSCs) categorize products and services as defined at www.acquisition.gov/psc-manual.

GovTribe provides a searchable database for each of these categorizations which you can use to find and research awards and opportunities related to your business vertical.
