Federal Business Opportunities (also known as FBO or FedBizOpps) is transitioning to beta.SAM.gov on November 8, 2019.
FBO is where contracting organizations in the federal government post notices on proposed contract actions that are valued at more than $25,000.
The notices include solicitations, pre-solicitations, sole source justifications, and more, and include the original notice date (and any amendments), an overview of the notice and the contracting agency, all related information, such as attachments or links, submission instructions, and response due dates.
Currently, anyone can use FBO, with or without an account.
FBO will be transitioning to beta.SAM.gov as the GSA merges all of its current legacy sites to one system, and will utilize the ‘beta’ designation to distinguish the new site from the legacy SAM.gov website.
