Feature Your Vendor Profile
Putting your company front-and-center in GovTribe
Standard and Premium plan users are able to "claim" their vendor profiles on GovTribe and add additional marketing content. Your profile is then featured (tagged and notated) on the Vendor Search Page in the context of the search being performed.
GovTribe's primary user base is made up of companies who are interested in federal contracting or grant-making. However, we are also visited by thousands of government users every month!
Through polling of our government users, we've learned that they are mostly contracting officers and other procurement specialists who use GovTribe to research companies when preparing new procurements (among other things).
Specifically, government procurement personnel use GovTribe to research companies that are eligible for certain set-asides, that have access to contracting vehicles, and that have the capabilities and past experience that match their current needs. This kind of research helps inform whether a bid comes out as a 8(a) or Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) set-aside, and whether a contract can be sole-sourced or should be bid competitively.
Example: A contracting officer from Homeland Security is preparing to procure cyber training services and wants to know if there are enough qualified small businesses to bid it as a small business set-aside. They visit the Federal Vendors page on GovTribe and sets up a query to identify all small businesses that have experience providing training services (NAICS 611) related to cyber security across DOD and civilian agencies.
If you are a small business with the relevant experience and your Profile is featured, the contracting officer will see something similar to this:
