Federal Contract IDV Awards

Annotated descriptions of Federal Contract IDV Awards Search and Detail pages in GovTribe

A Federal Contract Award is the money the federal government has promised to pay a recipient, obligated (promised) in the form of a Federal Contract. Funding may be awarded to a company, organization, government entity (i.e., state, local, tribal, federal, or foreign), or individual.

An Indefinite Delivery Contract (IDC) is a vehicle that has been awarded to one or more vendors to facilitate the delivery of supply and service orders. An Indefinite Delivery Vehicle (IDV) is established by an award from the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS), Governmentwide Award Contract (GWAC), Blanket Order Agreement (BOA), etc.

In GovTribe, the Awards section of the main menu contains the award information and obligations for every federal contract, contract IDV, contracting vehicle, and grant. GovTribe regularly mines contract-related award information from FPDS.gov and USASpending.gov in near real time so this information is synced with the definitive federal source.

Award information is searchable on GovTribe, via the Awards section of the navigation menu.

The first three items of this menu section are related to federal contracts. The fourth menu item allows you to search for Federal Grant Awards.

This document describes the second item: Federal Contract IDV Awards, which is the second level of the awards data hierarchy.
